Today, I am excited to show you just what you can make in your air fryer with this Taco Bell inspired Dorito Crunch Wrap. It is just as tasty as it sounds, and you only need a handful of ingredients!

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 4-6 burrito size tortillas (depends on how much ground beef you use for each crunch wrap)
  • 8 oz package shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or Mexican blend cheese) or slices of cheese
  • 1-2 tomatoes. sliced (I did roma tomatoes)
  • Lettuce, to taste (I purchased one shredded bag of lettuce. You can get a head of lettuce and shred it, or just layer on a slice or two of lettuce)
  • Dorito nacho cheese chips, to taste (I bought a traditional size bag of Dorito chips and enjoyed the leftovers)

Ingredient Substitutions

You can use ground turkey, ground chicken, or your favorite meat instead of ground beef, if desired.

You can, of course, substitute the Dorito Nacho Cheese Chips with your favorite tortilla chip flavor such as Cool Ranch or Spicy Sweet Chili. Or, you can use tostadas or regular tortilla chips if you don’t like the flavor of Dorito chips.

If you don’t have a packet of taco seasoning, make this simple homemade taco seasoning recipe.

You can omit the lettuce or use a different green instead, such as spinach.

You can use any flavor of cheese that you like best!

Feel free to add any of your other favorite taco fixings to the crunchwrap, such as onions, sour cream, cilantro, lime juice, bell peppers, etc.

Easy Taco Bell Recipe for the Air Fryer

This recipe is so simple to make! You will be so surprised with the fantastic flavor and little effort required to enjoy this copycat recipe in the air fryer!

Tip 1. Ground the Beef

Ground the beef on the stove top or in the air fryer.

If you are cooking it on the stovetop, add the taco seasoning with 1/2 cup of water. Bring it to a boil and let the meat simmer in the seasoning until all the water is absorbed.

If you are cooking ground beef in the air fryer, add the taco seasoning halfway through the cooking process.

Tip 2. Prepare your ingredients

This recipe comes together so much quicker when you prepare your taco fixings before hand and not while you are in the process of layering the tortilla. While the meat cooks, prepare the tomato, lettuce, Dorito chips, cheese, and any other additional taco fixings you want.

How do I fold a crunch wrap?

how to make a crunch wrap

If you haven’t folded a crunch wrap taco or burrito before, then it can be confusing at first. Here are a few tips for when folding and making a crunch wrap.

First, lay out the tortilla and then add your fixings. I added about 1/2 a cup of the taco meat mixture, then I added a handful of shredded cheese on top of the meat. This is followed by a slice or two of tomatoes, a couple of Dorito chips, shredded lettuce, then a little more cheese.

Next, take the outside of one point of tortilla and fold it to the center point of the tortilla. Move around the tortilla, by about an inch or two, and keep folding the edges and sides over each other and into the middle until it is closed and secure. 

How to Make a Crunch Wrap in the Air Fryer?

Take your secured crunch wrap and place is folded side down in a preheated and lightly sprayed air fryer basket. Lightly spray the top of the crunch wrap with a little more cooking oil. I like to use avocado oil in my reusable oil sprayer

Close the air fryer basket and cook for 5-6 minutes at 400 degrees F or 205 degrees C. Be sure to flip at the halfway point

Important Note about air fryers

Because all air fryer makes and models are different, cooking time may be different for your air fryer. Add more time as needed, or take out the crunch wrap early so it doesn’t burn. Just cook it long enough in the air fryer until it is crispy to your liking and the cheese has melted in the inside.

Carefully remove the crunch wrap from the air fryer and repeat for the remaining crunch wraps. If your air fryer is big enough to cook multiple at a time, then do that.

Enjoy your crunch wrap with additional taco fixings and toppings such as sour cream, salsa, pico de gallo, lime juice, or cilantro. You may also enjoy this recipe with homemade cilantro ranch dressing.
