Ok, so I have to start this post with admitting that I’ve never had a crunch wrap from Taco Bell. But I do know the components and understand how glorious the combination can be. I just don’t like TB.
But a homemade version?! I can totally get behind that. I, of course, couldn’t leave it alone and do a straight copycat recipe so instead I buffalo-ed it. Because everything is better with buffalo sauce in my opinion.
We start off with huge, burrito-sized flour tortillas. We also need tostada shells. You can usually buy them at the store or you can fry corn tortillas on both sides until crispy.
Cooked, diced chicken, a super simple homemade buffalo sauce, shredded mozzarella and crumbled blue cheese finish out the ingredient list.
I used chicken I had cooked in the Instant Pot and had leftover. You could grill it, use leftovers like I did or even use rotisserie chicken. It gets tossed in a mixture of hot sauce butter and garlic powder then we’re ready to assemble.
Let’s get down to the assembly now. Lay out the flour tortilla, sprinkle it with some mozzarella, top with a tostada shell, spread buffalo chicken over the tostada shell, sprinkle with more mozzarella and blue cheese and fold that baby up.
Once it’s folded and ready, melt some butter in a hot skillet (preferably cast iron) and cook both sides until golden and crispy.
YOU GUYS. You are going to want to eat these all the time. And think about the flavor possibilities. You could go the traditional taco route or mix it up with a cheeseburger or sloppy joe situation. It would just all be so good.
For now though, you’ll find me enjoying all the buffalo chicken crunch wraps.
