Sonic Wraps

Sonic Drive-Ins have been serving up tasty food at the “Speed of Sound” since the 1950s. Although Sonic is known mostly for its burgers, drinks, onion rings, and in-your-car dining experience, the chain has expanded its menu to include many new favorites like the Sonic Fritos Chili Cheese Wrap.

The Sonic Chili Cheese Wrap was initially offered as a limited-time promotion, but when the chain discontinued the menu item, the diners’ disappointment was enough to bring it back in limited locations.

Making a Sonic chili cheese wrap couldn’t be easier. It is basically just chili with all the fixings and a handful of the famous Fritos corn chips all wrapped up in a tortilla. But don’t let the utter simplicity fool you. This is one great sandwich you really have to try!

Much Depends on a Red Can

If you are a chili lover, and you choose to use your family’s favorite chili to use in this recipe, these wraps are going to be popular around your house. But if your goal is to recreate the most authentic Sonic taste, you really need to crack open a little red can of Hormel chili. Make it the kind without any beans, please.

Sure, not everyone likes the idea of eating chili from a can, and that is fine. In that case, go ahead and make the recipe whatever freshly made chili you have on hand, but don’t expect to get the same taste as you would at Sonic.

If you want to skip the can but don’t already have a bean-free chili recipe you love, why not try making Chilis Original Chili Recipe or Lady Bird Johnson’s Pedernales Chili. The second recipe is one of the easiest chili around, but you will probably want to drain the chili well before making a wrap.


Here’s a list of what you need:

  • Flour tortillas
  • Red onion
  • Hormel chili
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Fritos corn chips

Tips for Making and Serving a Sonic Chili Cheese Wrap

  • Make it your own with additional ingredients. Sonic offers diners several ways to customize their wraps, including adding extra cheese, spicy jalapeno slices, and onions. But don’t let what you can get at the drive-in limit what you do at home. Other great options are slices of avocado, a dollop of sour cream, shredded cilantro, and crumbled bacon.
  • Don’t overstuff your wrap. Too much filling in a wrap can make eating messy. For an 8-inch tortilla,don’t use more than a cup of filling. You can increase that to a cup and a half if you are using 10-inch wraps. Remember to place the filling a third of the way from the bottom and leave enough space on the sides to fold them over.

Other Fritos-Based Dishes You Can Make at Home

No tortillas, no problem. You can use this same basic recipe to make a variety of different Sonic Drive-In menu items. Sonic Fritos Pie is almost the same recipe, just without the tortilla. Top a hamburger with a Fritos Pie, and you wind up with a Fritos Chili Cheese Jr. Burger. Do the same thing to a hot dog, and you get the Fritos Chili Cheesy Coney.

    I have been looking a recipe for Sonic’s chili, I have to have it! Maybe one day, i will get my hands on it. Until then, i will go through their drive-thru and order their delicious chili cheese coney!! Got lucky this past week, they were only a $1…I know right! I’m not a Flint style chili person, more of a Detroit style chili sauce. When i do make chili dogs at home, I always use fresh buns, Hormel chili sauce… no beans, a good Kosher dog that has been cooked in my cast iron skillet until it’s browned slightly all over, and cheez whiz or velveeta. A good dog requires a good fresh steamed bun. If you have a big family to feed all at once, you can go ahead and fix them and place them in a pan in the oven that has been set to 200, to keep them warm. Then, take them out, add onions and mustard.Actually, I like mine better, if i have placed them in the oven for a bit.It adds a little texture to the outside of the buns, while the inside stays hot and soft. Just don’t leave them in there too long, or at a high heat either, maybe 5-8 minutes at most at 200.
