The Tortilla Trend

A tortilla wrap is sliced down one side, divided into quarters for ingredients, folded, and seared in a pan until crisp. It is known as The Tortilla Challenge or #tortillatrend. This went viral on TikTok in January 2021 and is a super fun way to get creative with ingredients! Here are some healthy versions using wholegrain wraps!

METHOD:

  1. Slice: Place a wholegrain wrap on a flat surface. Make a single slice through the wrap from the centre to the outer edge.
  2. Fill: Picture the tortilla in quarters. Place ingredients in each quarter (see below for ideas).
  3. Fold: Start with the quarter to the left of the cut and fold the tortilla into triangles all the way around.
  4. Heat: Lightly brush a skillet, pan or panini press with some oil and sear the tortilla on both sides until golden brown and crisp. If using a pan or griddle, you can press down firmly with flat spatula or even place a heavy skillet on top to compress the tortilla as it cooks.

 

  • 1st Quarter – Sauce / Something Creamy (so it is easy to fold over onto quarter 2)
  • 2nd Quarter – Fresh ingredients or anything that does not need to get as hot.
  • 3rd Quarter – Protein or anything that should be warm.
  • 4th Quarter – Anything that will melt (this will be the “glue” that holds the wrap together)
