Getting out of bed in the morning is hard, but it’s way less difficult when a Taco Bell breakfast crunchwrap is waiting for you in the kitchen. If you’ve never heard of this popular Taco Bell breakfast and are wondering “what is a breakfast crunchwrap,” it’s simply a grilled tortilla loaded with an entire hash brown, scrambled eggs, your choice of bacon, sausage, or steak, melted cheese, and tied together with a creamy jalapeño sauce. The breakfast crunchwrap is easy to replicate at home and doesn’t involve falling asleep while waiting in the drive-thru line at Taco Bell. Our copycat recipe starts with a spicy sauce made of mayo, paprika, sliced jalapenos, and cumin. Smear the sauce onto a tortilla and then add layers of crispy bacon, scrambled eggs fried in bacon fat, a sautéed hash brown, and a handful of shredded cheese. Next, wrap everything up and cook in a skillet with a bit of butter until the tortilla turns a deep golden brown. Serve it hot, dunked in salsa and sour cream. Eat it at home, or take the handheld breakfast with you on-the-go.
