How it started
TikTok loves a fun food hack (see hot cocoa bombs and the no mess lemon squeeze). So when a canny TikTokker shared a game-changing method for creating a stuffed and folded wrap, others – many, many others – quickly followed suit.A few months on and there are countless filling ideas. We’ve picked out our faves to share with you, but first let’s learn how it’s done.
Cut and fold
Take a large tortilla and make one slice from the centre to the outer edge. Next, pop your choice of fillings in each ‘quarter’ (e.g., one quarter: tomato salsa, the next: a slice of ham, the third: shredded lettuce and the final: grated cheese).
Now it’s time to fold. Starting with the quarter on the left of the cut, fold the tortilla over onto the next quarter and again and again until you finish with a fat triangle. Then lightly oil a good non-stick pan or grill and sear your creation to perfection.
