Mexican Style Crunch Wrap - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

In the mood for food that’s a full-on fiesta of flavour? You can’t go wrong with a Mexican-inspired fakeaway night when you fancy something extra tasty for dinner. Forget fajitas or messy tacos, these Mexican Style Crunch Wraps have mealtimes all wrapped up (literally!). 

We’ve used a clever wrap hack that we spotted on TikTok to make these little parcels of taco-seasoned beef. By working in each quarter of your tortilla wrap circle, you can load up different flavours, before folding them into neat little triangles that get baked in the oven until they’re all crispy and delicious. 

Alongside the meaty filling, we’ve included a chunky, fresh guacamole and a cheesy section that’s sprinkled with crunchy, crushed up tortilla chips. This recipe really has it all! 

At 288 calories per wrap, this dish is light enough (and quick enough) to make for lunch any day of the week. You can also add whatever Mexican-side dishes you like to turn it into a hearty, filling dinner. We love it with a side salad and some Sweet Potato Fries

What diets is this Mexican Style Crunch Wrap suitable for?

This Mexican Style Crunch Wrap can be enjoyed on gluten free diets, as long as you substitute the tortilla wraps and the stock cube for suitable gluten-free alternatives. 

As always, please take extra care when cooking for people with allergies and be sure to use different utensils, cookware and preparation areas.

Step 4

While the beef is cooking, add the avocado, spring onion, cherry tomatoes, lime juice and Sriracha to a bowl and stir until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Microwave the tortilla wraps for 30 seconds to make them easier to work with.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 190ºC.

Step 6

Now you’re ready to assemble. With the tortilla flat in front of you, cut halfway up the middle. Imagine the tortilla is split into 4 sections. Leaving the bottom left quarter empty, add the crushed tortilla chips and grated cheese to the top left. Then add the beef to the top right, and finally the avocado mixture to the bottom right.

Step 7

Fold the bottom left corner up over the top left, then fold that over onto the top right, then fold over onto the bottom right. You should have a folded triangle shape with your filling inside. Place onto a baking tray and repeat with the other wraps.

Step 7 pinchofnom.com Step 7 pinchofnom.com Step 7 pinchofnom.com

Step 8

Pop the baking tray into the oven for 5 minutes until the tortilla parcels are crispy, and serve with a spoonful of sour cream and your choice of accompaniment.
