That's how you know it's good! What's even better is that in a few simple steps, you can recreate this tasty treat at home. The Flexible Fridge's own Susan Olayinka walks us through how to make this yummy, filling wrap at home.

Gather your ingredients

To make your own copycat Subway's chipotle southwest steak and cheese wrap, you'll need a few simple ingredients. First, the star of the show, the steak, which should be 8 ounces. Next, you'll need a few spices. There's salt, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. If you don't already have these ingredients in your spice cabinet, you may want to take a trip to the store before you get started on this recipe.

You'll also need a quarter cup of guacamole, two leaves of sliced baby gem lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, tomato, bell pepper, and red onion. Last but not least, you'll need two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

Begin by prepping your steak

To get started, you'll want to slice your steak in very thin slices. This will make it easy to fill the wrap with as much mouthwatering meat as your heart desires. You can achieve these thin slices with several different cuts of meat, or you can opt for pre-sliced meat from your local grocery store.

Make sure your knife is sharp for the best results, but be careful! To get those thin slices, some recommend freezing the meat for 15 to 20 minutes before slicing. Once it's sliced, place your steak slices into a mixing bowl. 

Next, add spices to make for the most flavorful steak possible

Now it's time to get the flavor into every bite of that steak. You'll add a quarter teaspoon of salt, a quarter teaspoon of black pepper, an eighth of a teaspoon of onion powder, and an eighth of a teaspoon of garlic powder to the mixing bowl. Mix well until everything is well coated.

The seasoning you add to the meat will make all the difference in the flavor. "For me, the seasoning of meat is everything!" shares Susan Olayinka of The Flexible Fridge. If you want to change it up, she recommends subbing in Mexican spices instead. "I feel Mexican-inspired spices marry so well with meat. So this twist works really well."

Heat a frying pan to cook the steak slices

Once you've seasoned your steak slices, you're ready to cook them. Grab a frying pan and place it over medium-high heat. Add the extra virgin olive oil, and allow the pan to heat up.

Once the pan is hot, add the steak slices. You'll want to cook the steak for about seven minutes while constantly stirring. After the seven minutes is up, remove the steak from the pan. Set aside on a plate covered in paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Prepare to assemble your wrap

Now that the steak is cooked, you're ready to assemble your wrap. On a large chopping board, situate your tomato and basil wrap. If you can't find tomato and basil, spinach and whole wheat wraps will also taste great. 

Next, add the ingredients in order. Spread guacamole on the wrap. Top with lettuce, then add shredded cheddar cheese. Next up, add your sliced tomatoes and bell pepper. Follow this with the red onion and jalapeño. Next, add the steak.

Fold, slice, and serve!

Once you've reached this step, you're just minutes away from enjoying an amazing wrap! Fold in the sides of the wrap. Then, begin to roll the wrap from the bottom, tucking the sides in.

Slice your wrap down the middle, plate, and enjoy! You'll be amazed how much flavor is in every single bite and how close it is to the Subway original. Enjoy with a side of chips for a filling, fun lunch.
