  • 1/3 cup refried black beans
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 2 burrito-sized flour tortillas
  • 35 triangle-shaped tortilla chips
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced or mashed
  • 1/4 cup shredded lettuce (romaine, iceberg, or butter lettuce)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded purple cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons chopped grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 lime, juiced


  1. Add refried beans and taco seasoning to a bowl and mix until well combined.
  2. Lay out the tortilla and spread the bean mixture in the center, leaving about 2″ around the outer edges.
  3. Next add chips in a single layer over the black beans, followed by avocado, lettuce cabbage, tomatoes, and cheese.
  4. Lay the second tortilla flat on a cutting board and use a knife to cut a smaller circle out of the center (cutting off about 2″ of edge all the way around). 
  5. Place the circle on top the filling. Fold the edges on top of the center forming a disc so that it’s completely closed (no filling should be exposed).
  6. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and grease with butter. Place the crunchwrap in seam-side down and cook until browned and crispy. Flip and repeat on the other side.
  7. Remove from the skillet, let stand for 1-2 minutes and then slice in half with a sharp knife.
  8. Make a quick lime crema by mixing the sour cream and lime juice in a small bowl. Season with salt to taste and then drizzle over the top of the crunch wrap. Serve immediately.
