The Tortilla Hack You Need To Try
Social media has become home to DIY influencers sharing life hack after life hack they claim are game changers. And I'm a sucker every time and try those life hacks. The most deceitful ones seem to be hair related. I've tried plenty of hair tricks that flat out don't work. The jump cuts in the video should be giveaways, but I guess I'm an optimist. But every once in a great blue moon I come across a hack that begs to be shared.
Move over, tacos. Bye, burritos. This tortilla hack is versatile and layers the filling of your choosing perfectly to create a delicious wrap you'll want to make again and again.
Step 1: Take a large tortilla, cut a slit half way up the center.
Step 2: Cover each of the four quarters of the tortilla with a different ingredient or spread.
Step 3: Take the cut edge of the tortilla and fold it into four quarters.
Step 4: Place the wrap in a panini press for a few minutes OR toast the wrap on each side in a preheated pan.
I've made several variations of this wrap using a panini press and it doesn't disappoint. My favorite is a cheesy garlic spinach wrap with deli slices. I use Trader Joe's Garlic Spread-Dip, fresh spinach, Field Roast Chao Slices, and Tofurky Hickory Smoked Slices. TikTok and Instagram is chockfull of tutorial clips that show just how easily you can make one of these tasty wraps, like this one:
So grab a pack of tortillas and get creative folks! The possibilities are endless.
