Carnitas Crunchwrap

If I couldn’t just leave well enough alone I just had to tinker with tacos bells crunch wrap supreme. Let me explain other than the obvious fact that I like to mess with things. Sometimes I just really enjoy knowing whats in my food. Its just an unrealistic expectation to need to be wasted to enjoy taco bell ( I know I lost some of you all here) when you can make it at home and put the things you like and enjoy . For this I opted for carnitas because they are tender and juicy and the perfect meat for this. I also chose Oaxaca cheese because its stringy, creamy and mild enough to let the meat shine. Check this recipe out and let me know what you think!

A quick tip: If you finish with cheese at the crease when it cooks the cheese will seal the gap at the top.
