    To assemble the crunchwraps, lay out each of the tortillas. Evenly divide the taco meat among the tortillas, spooning a small circle on top of each tortilla. Top each mound of taco meat with a tostada, then evenly divide the shredded lettuce, cheese sauce, tomato and diced olives. Top each with a heaping tablespoon of sour cream.
