Here’s an uncharacteristic move: I made a Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme.
I haven’t eaten a bite of “traditional” fast food in at least 10 years (Shack Shack not included). But when my editors at First We Feast suggested we branch out from classics like roast chicken and chocolate chip cookies to show people how to craft their own versions of cult favorites like this Taco Bell Crunchwrap thingy (which I had to Google around a bit to understand because I am that out of the fast-food loop), I said OK.
Turns out that even though the tortilla-wrapped taco looks like something made in a high-tech lab, the handheld burrito-taco hybrid is a lot more natural to make than you’d suspect. At once soft and crunchy, rich and fresh, it’s genuinely worth copying if you like Taco Bell but are anxious to eat less MSG, or if you don’t like Taco Bell but do like origami.
