The recipe takes just 20 minutes to make.

First Ayeh cooks her protein, she is making a vegan alternative so uses beans but this can be animal-based protein too.

Then she heats up her large tortilla before she layers the bean mixture, cheese, corn chips, guacamole, diced tomatoes, jalapeños and shredded lettuce. 

She then folds the tortillas and toasts the entire wrap in a pan.

INGREDIENTS 

 Large flour tortillas for the base

Black beans (or ground beef mince)

Small street taco tortillas for the top 

 Pickled jalapeños

Cheese (of choice) 

Iceburg lettuce 

 Taco seasoning

Chipotle mayonnaise or sour cream

Corn tortilla chips 

Guacamole (avocado, lime juice and coriander)

Tomatoes

METHOD

Cook your protein 

Saute beans or meat in olive oil with onions and taco seasoning.

Prepare the wrap

Heat a large tortilla and in even layers, add in the centre some chipotle sauce, a layer of the bean mixture, cheese, corn chips, guacamole, diced tomatoes, jalapeños and shredded lettuce.

Place a small street taco on top and gently press down to flatten the layers beneath.

Fold your wrap

Tightly fold the edges up of the large tortilla over to the center, holding each fold whilst working all the way around the tortilla.

Toast

Place large pan or skillet over medium heat with a spray of olive oil spray. Place the Crunchwrap so that the folded sides are face down. Toast until the bottom is golden brown, flip, and repeat for the other side.
