COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - A viral trend that started on the social media platform TikTok will change the way you fold wraps and quesadillas.

The tortilla wrap hack involves making a slice to the middle of the tortilla then filling your tortilla in different quadrants. Once you fill the tortilla, you fold it into a triangle starting from the sliced area. View the videos below with H-E-B Cooking Connection to see exactly how the fold takes shape.

“It is such a simple technique, you do not have to have a deep fryer. You do not have to have any special equipment. You can use a skillet or a griddle or if you have a panini press that works, too,” said Lisa Fritz with H-E-B Cooking Connection.

The method simplifies the cooking process and opens the door to creative cooking.

“[The tortilla wrap hack] is a fun way to make dinner and get everybody involved,” said Fritz. “You just fold it over. It makes a real neat little package. A great snack for the kids because it doesn’t all fall out on the plate. [The Tortilla Hack] makes [wraps] a lot easier and handier.”

Fritz also said it’s a great way to use tortillas beyond taco night. She encourages people to try the method out with just common ingredients they have in their fridge or try different genres of food like Italian.

Below are some recipes Fritz created utilizing the trend.
