Watch: A new take on TikTok’s viral wrap hack.

A foodie hack that will change the way you make wraps forever, has been proving popular on social media.

With many of us spending more time WFH, we’re looking for a way to up the ante on our dullsville lunches, and this quick and simple wrap trick is breathing life into snack time.

The hack, which has gone viral on TikTok, involves putting different ingredients into four sections of your wrap, folding it into neat, contained sections, then toasting it.

It’s a game-changer, because who hasn’t made a wrap that sees your ingredients slowly slide out with every single mouthful?

Or excitedly tucked into a homemade wrap only to discover your ingredients are not evenly distributed inside, resulting in several bites of disappointment?

Shared to the video-sharing platform by a number of people, the trick involves slicing halfway down a flat tortilla wrap and covering each of the four quarters of the tortilla with a different spread or ingredient.

Once you’ve added your choice of toppings, take the cut edge of the tortilla and fold it over each segment in turn.

You’ll want to keep making folds either clockwise or counter clockwise until the tortilla is folded into a neat triangle.

From there, you can put your flavour packed wrap in a panini press for a few minutes, or place in a pre-heated pan until it’s toasted on both sides.

The wrap trick isn’t the only food hack we’ve been loving on TikTok recently.

Back in September one user shared a simple trick for creating perfect, crispy potatoes every time, using just one store cupboard ingredient.

Other popular hacks of 2020 included a clever way to make Insta-worthy iced coffee using tiny ice cubes and a reboot of the humble hot chocolate to make it whipped.

We even learnt how to make annoying food spills on our kitchen counter a thing of the past and realised we’d been grating cheese wrong this entire time.
