How to Fold a Tortilla Wrap

Tortilla wraps provide a new way to serve the same old sandwich fillings. Fill tortillas with luncheon meats, cheeses or sandwich spreads. Wraps can also encase more traditional items such as taco or burrito fillings. Flour tortillas are typically used for wraps as they fold more easily than corn tortillas. Plain flour tortillas are common, but flavoured varieties such as sun-dried tomato add more flavour and work well with a variety of filling choices.

Heat the tortilla in the microwave for 20 seconds. Alternatively, heat in a dry skillet over medium heat for 30 seconds on each side.

Spread your filling down the centre of the tortilla. Leave a 1 inch space between the filling and the top and bottom edge of the tortilla.

Fold the bottom inch of the tortilla over the filling. Fold the top inch over the filling.

Roll the tortilla, beginning with one of the unfolded edges. Place a dab of your preferred condiment, such as cream cheese or bean dip, along the seam to hold the tortilla closed once it's rolled up.


Wraps store well in the refrigerator for a day or two. Wrap the prepared tortilla wrap in cling film before refrigerating.
