Homemade Crunch-Wrap Supreme

Let's face it: Even though we eat out for only one meal per week, we often get cravings for fast food or for eating out. But that can get costly, both monetarily and nutritionally.

But when you can re-create those meals at home, well, let's face it, that's when goodness can happen.

And that happened in our home tonight after Melissa, who is thoroughly in love with Taco Bell's crunch-wrap supremes, decided to make such a meal for our dinner.
Homemade Crunch-Wrap Supreme
1 pound ground sirloin
4 reduced-fat tortillas
low-fat sour cream
reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
baked tortilla chips
1 diced Roma tomato
romaine lettuce leaves
To start, brown the ground sirloin; drain. Add taco seasonings. Then it's on to assembly.

Take a tortilla and spread some sour cream on. Add about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of beef and top with cheese and crushed tortilla chips.

Then add tomatoes and romaine. Fold over one edge of tortilla and continue in clockwise or counter-clockwise movement until all of tortilla is folded over. Place fold side down on medium-low pan. After the bottom side is brown, flip and brown. It should take a couple of minutes per side.

It is best to put sour cream on first before the beef. Otherwise, the sour cream could ooze out. The chips provide the crunchiness, but you could use other ingredients, obviously. We had baked tortilla chips, so we decided to use that. We ate only about half of the beef, so this could be a two-night dinner.
