Ingredients

  • 1/2 batch nacho cheese
  • cashew sour cream
  • 1/2 cup dried green or brown lentils
  • 1.5 cup water or veggie stock
  • 1/2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 3 corn tortillas or tostadas
  • 3-4 large burrito-sized tortillas
  • shredded lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped

Instructions

PREP

  • Make the nacho cheese and sour cream (click on each ingredient for the instructions). 
  • Crisp up the corn tortillas if you aren't using pre-made tostadas. Bake in the oven on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 400 degrees for 8 minutes, flipping halfway. Set aside.

LENTIL TACO MEAT

  • Add lentils, water, tomato paste, and taco seasoning to a pot.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 20-30 mins or until tender. You may need to add more water throughout the cooking process. 

LAYER IT UP

  • On a tortilla, layer in this order: 2 tbsp nacho cheese, 1/3 cup lentil taco meat, tostada/corn tortilla, 2 tbsp sour cream, small handful of shredded lettuce, small handful of chopped tomatoes. Drizzle a little more cheese on top. When spreading your ingredients out, make sure to avoid the outer 3 inches or so.
  • Fold the edges in. If there is a gap in the middle, put a small piece of extra tortilla in the middle and fold back up. 
  • Put together the remaining 2 crunch wraps.
  • STOVE METHOD: Heat up a non-stick pan on medium heat. When hot, place the crunch wrap folded side down. Once browned, flip and brown on the other side.
  • OVEN METHOD: Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake crunch wraps folded side down for 10 minutes or until browned. Flip and bake on other side for additional 10 minutes.
