Why You’ll Love These Vegan Crunchwrap Supremes
This is one of my favorite recipes, and I’m guessing it will soon be one of your favorites, too. Here’s some of my favorite things about it.
- Fast food at home. Let’s be honest: we all have a soft spot for places like Taco Bell. It doesn’t matter how healthy you eat, you always get those cravings from time to time. And these vegan crunchwrap supremes satisfy those cravings, but at home. They’re just like the Taco Bell version, except vegan, and you can make them all yourself!
- As healthy as they are fun. Any recipe that I would describe as both fun and healthy is a good recipe in my book. And that’s exactly what these are. With vegan meat crumbles, vegan cheese, and fresh vegetables, these crunchwraps are pretty healthy. But they’re every bit as fun as the fast food version, and they’re fun to make, too!

Notes on Ingredients
Here are all the ingredients you need to make vegan crunchwrap supremes at home. Check out the recipe card at the bottom of the article for the exact amounts of each ingredient.
- Flour tortillas – Make sure you buy the burrito size tortillas.
- Tostada shells
- Vegan meat crumbles – The vegan meat should be cooked before you start this recipe.
- Taco seasoning
- Vegan cheese sauce – This is my favorite recipe.
- Lettuce – You should use shredded iceberg lettuce.
- Vegan sour cream
What is Taco Seasoning?
Taco seasoning is a spice blend that you can find at any grocery store. Every brand’s blend of spices for taco seasoning is different, but they usually include onion, garlic, paprika, chili, and oregano. You can always make your own taco seasoning if you don’t have the premade blend.
How to Make Vegan Crunchwrap Supremes
Here’s how to make this fun Mexican dish.
- Season the meat crumbles. Add the vegan meat crumbles, water, and taco seasoning to a skillet and cook on medium-high heat until the water evaporates. Stir the mixture occasionally as it cooks.
- Start assembling. Place roughly ¼ of the vegan meat mixture on top of a tortilla. Spread the mixture in a circle that is roughly the same size as your tostada shells.
- Add the cheese. Pour some of the gooey vegan cheese sauce over the vegan meat.
- Add the tostada. Place a tostada on top of the cheese sauce.
- Add sour cream. Spread sour cream over the top of the tostada.
- Top with veggies. Put the lettuce on top of the sour cream, and then put the tomatoes on top of the lettuce.
- Fold. Carefully fold the tortilla around the fillings. If it doesn’t quite cover the fillings, you can tear a small piece off of another tortilla.
- Seal. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Place the crunchwrap in the skillet, folded side down. Cook for 2 minutes, then flip and cook for 2 more minutes. Then serve!
Tips for Success
Here are some tricks and tips for making the best vegan crunchwrap supremes.
- Warm the tortillas. Before assembling, briefly warm the tortillas in a dry skillet or in the microwave. If the tortilla is warm, you’ll have an easier time folding it without ripping it.
- Keep your hands wet. When folding the crunchwrap, make sure that your hands are a little bit damp. This will make it easier for you to work with the dry tortilla.
- Use chips if you need to. If you can’t find tostada shells, don’t worry! Just place tortilla chips in the shape of a circle instead.
Here are some fun ways that you can switch up these vegan crunchwrap supremes.
- Replace the vegan meat crumbles. If you don’t feel like eating vegan meat, or if you don’t have any, then replace the crumbles with black beans, refried beans, roasted cauliflower, or roasted potatoes.
- Use shredded vegan cheese. Vegan cheese sauce is one of my favorite foods, but shredded cheese is pretty darn good too. If you prefer vegan shredded cheese, you can use it instead of the cheese sauce. Or better yet, you can use both! I recommend putting shredded vegan cheese underneath the vegan meat crumbles, so that it will melt better.
- Add some fun toppings. These vegan crunchwrap supremes taste fantastic as is, but it’s always fun to add new ingredients to them. When you’re adding the vegan sour cream, lettuce, and tomatoes, ahh some other of your favorite toppings, like salsa, hot sauce, guacamole, cilantro, green onions, or pickled jalapeños.
How to Store Vegan Crunchwrap Supremes
You can store these crunchwraps in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. That said, this recipe really doesn’t store very well. The corn tortilla will get soggy, and the flour tortilla will get mushy. I recommend only making as many vegan crunchwrap supremes as you intend on serving.
Can I Freeze This Recipe?
I don’t recommend freezing these crunchwrap supremes. But if you do, they’ll last in an airtight container in the freezer for 3 months. To reheat, wrap them in aluminum foil and cook in a 350F oven for 5-10 minutes.
