We buy our ground beef in bulk at Costco and then separate it into one-pound sections. We place the divided sections into freezer bags to pull out one pound of beef at a time when we need it.
Get Kids Involved
Ages 2-3: Give your child one or two of the toppings to help add on the layers as you assemble the crunch wrap. This might include sprinkling the cheese or lettuce on top of the nacho cheese sauce. Ages 4-5: Ask your child to help with adding some of the toppings as you assemble the crunch wrap. Ages 6-8: Teach your child to use a meat masher to brown the ground beef. They can then help spoon the meat mixture on top of the tortillas. Ages 9-11: Supervise them while they prepare the entire recipe. Remember to have them read it twice before beginning the recipe. Ages 12+: Let them prepare the entire recipe, unsupervised, while you do the happy dance in the corner!
