Makes 5


  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 500g 5% fat beef mince
  • 1 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 pack of taco seasoning
  • 50g light cheddar (grated)
  • 100g mozzarella (grated)
  • 5 tbsp. salsa
  • 100g soured cream
  • Jalapeños (chopped)
  • Tomato slices
  • Lettuce
  • 5 tortilla wraps

< h2>Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/ 400°F.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a non-stick pan and add your beef mince. Cook for 5 minutes until brown, then add the onion and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes until onions are soft.
  3. Add the taco seasoning, stir through and cook for another 5 minutes before removing from heat.
  4. To build your crunch wrap, add 2-3 tablespoons of beef mince filling to the center of your tortilla, then cheddar and mozzarella on top, followed by salsa, jalapeños, soured cream, tomatoes, and lettuce. Leave a generous border of tortilla for folding, then fold the edges of tortilla into center roughly 5-6 times until the filling is enclosed. Quickly flip your crunch wrap over so the folds are face down and transfer to a baking tray.
  5. Repeat this process 4 more times, then bake your crunch wraps for 5-10 minutes, until crispy and golden.
