the Ranchero Breakfast Crunchwrap is our spicy breakfast version of the original favorite. super easy and quick to make for breakfast, lunch AND dinner!
Ranchero Breakfast Crunchwrap
I just love a crispy crunchwrap!
I just had to combine the two. With a bit of a spicy kick.
Don’t like spicy as much as we do? This Classic Ranchero Sauce is totally customizable to your heat preferences! Add fewer of the spicier peppers, more of the mild. Add different peppers!
In a pinch, I have been known to use fresh frozen Hatch Green Chiles in this recipe. Works just fine.
Pan fry, air fry, oven crisp
Also customizable – the way you get the CRUNCH into this crunchwrap!
My favorite is the air fryer, just because it is so super quick and easy – especially if you do not want to add oil. Baking and pan frying work with no oil too, although I sometimes slip a bit of vegan butter into the pan for the pan fried version. Mmm.
I hope you all like the Ranchero Breakfast Crunchwrap as much as we do.
and as much as you all love the original.

In the air fryer: Cook each Crunchwrap for 6 minutes at 350°F.

Classic Ranchero Sauce
YIELD: 26 ounces / 3 1/4 cups
dairy, egg, soy, oil and gluten free, vegan
1 cup vegetable broth, divided
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced
2-3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
2+ teaspoons cumin
1 fresh jalapeño pepper, stemmed and diced
1 fresh poblano pepper, stemmed and diced
2 chipotle pepper in adobo
1 (14 ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
Add 3-4 tablespoons vegetable broth to a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic in broth until softened and translucent. Add cumin, stir to combine / coat.
Add jalapeño, poblano, and chipotle peppers, continue to sauté several minutes until softened.
Add full can of tomatoes and their liquid, and the remaining vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer. Simmer for several minutes.
Remove from heat. Use sauce as is, or blend with a stick blender / carefully transfer to blender. I blend to a rough consistency, with some small pieces of pepper and tomato.
Use immediately while warm. Cool completely before storing. Store covered in refrigerator for up to one week.
