Sometimes, trending recipes aren’t what you were expecting. Other times, they’re a hit with your whole family. This is one of those times. This TikTok tortilla hack turns a plain old tortilla into a hearty meal or treat in just a few minutes, and the possibilities for fillings are endless. We’re offering up a few recipes to get you started, but soon you’ll find yourself adding a little of this or that to put your own creative spin on the popular folded tortilla wrap.

Have the Kids Make Their Own Folded Tortilla

Kids are more likely to eat foods that they prepared themselves. Give them a sense of control by letting them choose what goes in each quadrant. Folding tortillas this way solves a challenging part of eating wraps when your hands are little – it turns the tortilla into a cup that holds all the goodies inside!

Here’s how to make a bacon avocado breakfast folded tortilla, and a chocolate strawberry bacon breakfast tortilla.

Avocado Bacon Breakfast Tortilla Wrap

Ingredients

Almond flour tortilla (Siete or Whole Foods brand)
1 fried egg
2 slices cooked bacon, broken into a few pieces
1/4 sliced avocado
1/2 oz. cheese of choice
Primal Kitchen® Avocado Oil Spray or Avocado Oil
Salsa for dipping

Directions

Preheat a seasoned cast iron skillet on the stovetop over medium heat. Once hot, add a little avocado oil or use avocado oil spray. Place the tortilla in the pan and let it heat up for 15 seconds on each side. You want the tortilla to be pliable and soft, but not to the point where it gets too toasted and gets tough.

Quickly cut a slit halfway through the center of the tortilla. Orient the tortilla so the cut side of the tortilla is facing you.

Arrange the fillings in each quadrant of the tortilla.

Fold the bottom left flap of the tortilla up to meet the top left. Flip that section to the right to cover the top right quadrant. Then flip one more time to cover the bottom right quadrant.

Add a little more avocado spray to the pan. Once the oil is hot, place the folded tortilla in it. If needed, you can gently press the tortilla down with a small skillet or bottom of a heavy jar.

Flip the folded tortilla over with a spatula until both sides are nice and browned.

Repeat with additional tortillas and fillings.

Eat your tortillas as is, or dip the savory breakfast tortillas in salsa!

Notes

If your eggs are large, you might need to cut the fried egg in half before placing on the tortilla. You could also try using small or medium eggs instead. I simply fried them in a cast iron pan until the yolks were soft, but feel free to prepare them however you like!

The tortillas I used were Whole Foods Brand grain-free almond flour tortillas – Siete brand tortillas work too. They are about 7 inches wide. If you use a larger tortilla, you may want to add more of each filling.

In lieu of heating the tortilla in a skillet, you can also wrap it in a damp paper towel and place in the microwave for 20-30 seconds, but I found the skillet to be easier and faster.

After some testing, the arrangement of the fillings in each of their quadrants in the images seems to be the best way to get the tortilla to stick together, but of course feel free to put the ingredients wherever you’d like!
