The TikTok Tortilla Wrap Hack You've Been Dying To Try

If the suddenly ubiquitous video sharing social media platform TikTok has shown us anything, it's that people really love sharing videos about food. Like really love it. Like videos going viral to the tune of millions of views. So it's little surprise that this TikTok recipe is sensational too.

"This TikTok tortilla wrap hack reminds me of a Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme," says chef, food writer, and registered dietician Kristen Carli. The method of preparing a tortilla in this recipe is half the story or even perhaps a bit more than half. The range of ingredients you can use in said preparation is the rest of the tale. So while following the exact recipe Carli has laid out is a good idea for the first go around, you should by all means branch out later. "I cannot wait to try this with other ingredients next," she says.

For now, though, we'll fold up a tortilla that will indeed remind you of that Taco Bell classic and that makes an entire hand-held meal your entire family will love.

Gather your ingredients for this TikTok tortilla wrap hack

Remember folks, this TikTok tortilla wrap hack ingredient list is a jumping off point, not a set of rules. But you sure won't go wrong if you go with one large tortilla, two tablespoons of shredded lettuce, a tablespoon of chopped tomato, a quarter cup of cooked ground beef, a quarter of a cup of sour cream, three large tortilla chips, crushed, and a quarter of a cup of shredded Mexican cheese.

"You can easily make this recipe vegetarian by substituting black beans for beef in this recipe," says Carli. "I recommend having fun with this one—there really are no rules. I've even seen this done with sushi using seaweed, fish, and rice."

Prep your TikTok tortilla wrap hack ingredients

If you have not done so already, go ahead and dice your tomato, shred your lettuce, and measure everything out for this TikTok tortilla wrap hack. Set your ingredients conveniently close at hand because you'll be using both hands at once, with one fully occupied by handling the tortilla itself. 

Once all your fillers are readied and nearby, lay the tortilla on a cutting board. Cut a line from the center of the tortilla straight to the edge, slicing along the radius, in other words. This one simple cut is what is going to make your wrap so easy to work with and so satisfying to eat.

Add TikTok tortilla wrap hack ingredients one quadrant at a time

Now it's time to start building your delectable hand-held meal. And order does matter here so as to keep the veggies farther away from the heat, so pay attention!

Add the shredded lettuce and chopped tomato to the quadrant at bottom left, with the slice to the right of this section. Then, add cooked ground beef to the quadrant above the veggies. Spread sour cream on the quadrant at the top right, and spread the crushed chips over it. 

Now add cheese to final quadrant at the bottom right, and you're all set. Don't overdo it with the TikTok tortilla wrap hack ingredients, either. "Overloading is definitely a mistake to avoid," says Carli, as stuff will spill out and may even cause the tortilla to rip.

Fold it up then fry your TikTok tortilla wrap

Starting at bottom left quarter, fold the tortilla up over to the top left, so the veggies fold over the beef. Next, fold these two quadrants over to the top right, covering the chips and sour cream. Now, finally, fold everything down over the bottom right, leaving you with a multi-layered quarter-circle of deliciousness.

Place the prepped wrap in a dry skillet over medium heat and let it cook for three minutes, then flip it over and cook for three more minutes. Now it's time to take a bite and see what all the buzz is about. (Here's a hint, though: It's about how awesome this easy dish tastes.)
