What is the Tortilla Wrap Hack?

It’s the easiest and least messy way to eat a sandwich wrap or homemade quesadilla thanks to a strategically placed cut that allows you to fold the tortilla wrap into the perfect pocket.

How to Wrap a Tortilla

The setup is simple, pick four ingredients that you love sandwiched together then grab a round flour tortilla and make a cut down from the center of it to the bottom edge. Next, strategically place your fillings in each of the tortilla’s four quadrants (to guarantee you don’t end up with a mess, stick to about a quarter cup of each filling). 

To fold, take the bottom right quadrant of the tortilla, then fold it upwards in a counter-clockwise direction over the quadrant with the other filling and repeat until it forms a tortilla pocket.

For a hot and crispy addition, add one tablespoon of butter to a skillet over medium heat, then sear the tortilla for up to three minutes on each side until the shell becomes golden brown.

No matter which toppings you choose, the approach is the same four, easy steps.

Tortilla Wrap Hack Ideas

What I love most about this viral tortilla trend is that the combinations are truly endless, from savory to sweet. Best of all, it’s a great way to make use of leftover odds and ends in your fridge or pantry.

A few of my favorite savory combinations:

  • Nacho-inspired tortilla – refried beans, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, smashed avocado and pickled jalapeños.
  • Buffalo chicken tortilla – cream cheese, shredded rotisserie chicken tossed with Buffalo hot sauce, provolone cheese and caramelized onion.
  • Pizza-style tortilla – marinara sauce, shredded mozzarella, sliced pepperoni and roasted red peppers.

To guarantee the best results, always include an ingredient that binds everything together (think spreads, cheeses or sauces), placed in the bottom right quadrant. Read on for the basic recipe rundown!
