Crispy Crunchy Wraps


You take a bite.

The warm tortilla crunches soundly against your teeth, breaking into brittle shards as the delicious contents reveal themselves to your taste buds.

I should be a novelist.

Fries and Burger
I would specialize in unlikely romances.

But really, this is solid stuff right here.

And all you need is a broiler. As in, no worries that your stove might explode electric sparks on you, like that last time you innocently tried to reheat leftover stir-fry. 

It’s basically baked American cannoli with Mexican tortillas and grilled chicken. A smidge of the American Dream, a little bit of rising prosperity, a chance to eat more and more crispy crunchy wraps every day at every meal. 

I’m all about that diversity. 

Crispy Crunchy Wraps

Notes: I sincerely hope you know how to make a wrap. If so, include any ingredients you fancy. If not, go back to Start and replay the game of life. 


  • wrap material: tortillas, spinach wraps, wheat wraps, etc.
  • filling: chicken, steak, cheese, lettuce, rice, beans, onions, pico de gallo, soybeans, chickpeas, peas, chicks, etc.


Cut everything into strips.  I just used seasoned brown rice, chicken, and lettuce. 

Some assembly required.

Assemble the wrap.

Break out your screwdriver and nails.

Now fold it messily and place on a oven-safe object.

How does Taco Bell do it?

Broil for 4 minutes a side, watching closely as it browns. 

Oh my glorious wrap.
Oh my glorious wrap.

The Extra Mile:

  1. Make this a breakfast burrito. Just use some eggs, ham, green onions, etc. 
  2. Make the outside extra crispy and delicious. Before broiling, just brush on just a thin layer of oil.


You know what? Diversity is better in large numbers.

This wrap represents diversity.

I think you can guess what I’m trying to say.

      Yes!! Baking is amazing because it can sometimes take the place of frying!
