This Big Mac Wrap is a tasty twist on the famous McDonald’s burger. It has all the traditional flavors you love but it’s wrapped in a crispy keto tortilla. In place of the middle bun, a homemade low carb tostada shell is used. These tostada shells are easy to make and only require 3 ingredients!

Each crunchwrap has two all-beef patties layered between sliced American cheese, pickles, onion, lettuce, Big Mac sauce and low carb tortillas. All that’s missing is the sesame seed bun and you won’t miss it! But you could toss in some sesame seeds for good measure!!

    Tortillas

    The secret to making the perfect, pillow-like Big Mac Wrap and keep it low carb is to find a keto tortilla that is BIG enough to hold all your burger fixings, and then fold those edges up tight like a cozy little pillow. I recommend at least a 10-inch tortilla or larger in order for your wrap to blanket around the Big Mac without spilling out.

    Obviously, even with a 10-inch tortilla, you can’t fully close the pillow. It’s simply not big enough, so you need a smaller low carb tortillas (about 4-inches) to serve as a bandaid to help completely wrap the burger. If you can’t find a smaller tortilla, just use one of the big ones and cut out a 4 inch circle from it. It’s a great way to use up all your tortillas and save money!!

    Both large and small keto tortillas are available at most grocery stores or online. Just keep in mind that some of the larger tortillas may contain gluten. If you really need to be gluten-free, you can make your own gluten-free tortillas.

    Storage information & make ahead instructions

    Meal prep

    If you’re looking to save some time while preparing your Big Mac wraps, here’s a handy tip: make the tostada shells and sauce ahead of time!

    For the keto tostadas, you can stop at the tortilla stage and refrigerate them for up to a week, or freeze them for 1-2 months. Just make sure to keep your low carb tortillas sandwiched between parchment paper and store them flat in a freezer-safe bag. This way, you’re dough is ready to go whenever you want to fry them. They only take about 5 minutes to unthaw at room temperature.

    Once you’ve fried up your tostada shells, you can store them at room temperature for up to 3 days. That means you can make a big batch and enjoy them throughout the week.

    The special sauce (aka Thousand Island Dressing), can be made ahead of time as well. Store it in a small jar or air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. 

    Refrigerator Storage

    Assembled keto crunch wraps can store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. And when you’re ready to enjoy it again, reheating is a breeze! Simply pop it in the air fryer at 375 degrees for 3-4 minutes or in the oven for 5-8 minutes.

    While freezing the crunch wraps is not recommended, you can certainly freeze your tortillas as we mentioned earlier. This way, you can always have the perfect tortilla ready to go for your next batch of crunch wraps.

    Keto Big Mac Crunchwrap: FAQS

    Can I use a small low carb tortilla instead of making the tostada shell?

    Yes! For an easier Big Mac Crunchwrap, get a small keto tortilla (about 4 inches) from the grocery store. Many stores sells ones from Mission that are zero net carbs (although they do contain gluten). Then fry the tortilla flat in oil to get it to harden into a tostada.

    Can I add tomato to my Big Mac?

    The traditional Big Mac hamburger from McDonald's doesn't have sliced tomato; however, feel free to add it to yours.

    I don't have a tortilla press. How can I flatten my tortillas and burgers?

    If you don't have a tortilla press to flatten your keto tortillas or burger, use a rolling pin! Sandwich the tortilla dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll to flatten into a very thin tortilla. The thickness is about the size of a dull pencil. The same can be done for the burgers or use a burger press.

    How can I make this lower carb?

    Most of the carbs are coming from the large tortilla and the American cheese. You can substitute with cheddar cheese and decrease each crunch wrap by 2 carbs. Look for large tortilla with the lowest carbs. The one used in this recipe is 5 grams net carbs.
