If you like the Crunchwrap Supreme from a local fast food chain, then you’ll absolutely love this Tasty 7 Layer Quesadilla Wrap. While it’s somewhat of a copycat, it’s so much better. Tasty 7 Layer Quesadilla Wrap is not at all doughy, and you can actually taste the yummy ingredients!
I used the following ingredients for the meat filling: Lean ground turkey, DIY Taco Seasoning, Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies, and water. You could certainly use store-bought taco seasoning. However, making your own is super easy. In addition, it’s so much better and you know exactly what’s in it.
For the Tasty 7 Layer Quesadilla Wrap, I used extra-large flour tortillas, Salsa Con Queso Cheese Dip, meat filling, Tostada Shells, light sour cream, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and shredded mexican cheese blend.
Making the Meat Filling:
I started by browning the ground turkey in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. I tend to always use ground turkey instead of ground beef for several reasons. First, it’s way more tender. Second, it’s not as fatty. Finally, the seasonings provide the flavor, so you’ll never know that it’s not beef!
Once the meat was browned, I drained it in a colander, and ran hot water over it. I always do this to remove as much fat as possible. Then, I drained the ground turkey, and rubbed it between my hands to break it up into small pieces as I returned it to the pan.
Next, I added the taco seasoning, water, and Rotel Tomatoes. I stirred the mixture to combine everything, and cooked it uncovered over medium heat for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, most of the liquid had evaporated.
Making the Tasty 7 Layer Quesadilla Wrap:
First, I cut a circle about the size of a tostada shell from one of the flour tortillas. This will serve as the “top” before I wrap the flour tortilla.
Then, I layered the ingredients on a large flour tortilla as follows:
- Salsa Con Queso Cheese Dip
- Meat mixture
- Tostada shell
- Sour cream
- Shredded lettuce
- Diced tomatoes
- Shredded Mexican cheese blend
Before wrapping the tortilla, I topped the 7 layers with the small tortilla circle that I had previously cut out. Then, I wrapped the tortilla around the filling in a hexagon shape.
I heated a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Then, I added the wrapped quesadilla, seam-side down. I cooked it for about 3 minutes until it started to brown. Next, I flipped the wrapped quesadilla over and cooked it for another 3 minutes or so until the other side started to brown.
Talk about good! The Tasty 7 Layer Quesadilla had the perfect amount of each of the fillings. It was a bit spicy, and absolutely delicious. Yum!
