This is because there is an assumption that you know how to wrap it or fold it. However, not everyone knows how to wrap a burrito, so in this post we want to tell you how to do it.
You have to know how to wrap a burrito so you don’t spill all the contents. Of course you don’t want to eat a burrito and all the filling is out. Actually, to wrap a burrito is a skill in itself, and if you already know how, of course you will also find it very simple and easy to do. However, before becoming an expert, you should know the basics and this is what we want to share with you all.
Making your burrito should be simple and don’t stress you out. Knowing how to wrap a burrito makes you want to prepare more burritos.
Step by step How to Fold a Wrap Tortilla
1. Use the right size burrito
One of the easiest ways to wrap or make tortillas is to make a burrito of the right size. 10 inches is my preferred tortilla size, this will fit more burrito filling. I love doing this and I love making tortillas with burrito fillings like this. Well, when we think about how to wrap a tortilla burrito, I already know how much to put in a burrito. This will let me know how big of a tortilla I should prepare.
2. Put in Your Fillings
Now, it’s time to add the burrito filling, it’s very easy to get carried away with beef, chicken, sour cream, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, eggs, black beans, spinach, ground beef and many more. The list of ingredients that you can put in a tortilla is very large, so don’t be surprised if most of those who make their own burritos from home, they prepare large tortilla sizes.
The problem is that when you’re about to cover this fluffy burrito, not everything will close properly. The patch will come out because there is no good seal. Likewise, if the skin of the tortilla is very thin, this will also hurt the tortilla or cause holes in it, causing the filling to come out. If this happens, it will be more difficult to overcome.
So knowing how to properly wrap tortillas is very important. One important consideration when entering content is not to include too much. Use less than you think, it helps you to cover the burrito with the tortilla properly.
So it’s better if we don’t put in too much stuffing than having to spill the whole stuffing because we put in too much.
3. Fold the sides of the tortilla
Put the two types of lengths together, folding one over the other. So it doesn’t matter which one is above and which one is below. Make the folds as tight as possible, this won’t pop your burrito.
4. Fold the ends
Fold the bottom up while you hold the sides, also hold the sides because the bottom will fold where they meet. Use your other hand to fold the top down.
Next, turn the burrito over and gravity will hold it in place. When you are ready to eat the burrito, hold on to one end to keep everything safe and not cause the burrito to spill.
How to Roll a Tortilla Wrap
A tortilla wrap is similar to a buritto except that it has more folds. So if you eat it you will find more layers of burritto in your mouth. So, the way of wrapping it is very similar to the burritto but there are still some differences.
Make the same packets as you made the burritto as described. Once we order that you keep the filling not too much so as not to damage the tortilla or make holes. To make the right package, you need more space so you don’t put too much stuffing in.
Fold the sides like a buritto, fold the bottom, this is what makes the wrapping method different from a buritto and we think it’s important to have a guide on how you fold a tortilla wrap.
Once you have folded the bottom side of the buritto, then continue to roll the whole buritto from one end to the other. It’s safer than standard burritos, so there’s less risk of the filling falling off.
How to Keep Your Wrap Secure
Keeping the package safe and not rip or tear is very important in making tortillas. So pay attention to how the following.
If you are wrapping tortillas to eat later (not eating right away), it may be important for you to know how to make tortilla wraps that are strong and don’t break or fall apart. For this, you are several ways you can do. If you wrap it well, it may stick together but after a while it will come off.
So, to prevent the tortilla packets from falling off, you have to use a toothpick through the tortilla packets. This will keep the two sides of your tortilla together and won’t fall apart.
You can also wrap the burritto nicely in paper, tinfoil, or plastic wrap. This will make the best package and more than anything and you don’t have to worry about unwrapping it. So, in conclusion, to prevent your tortilla sandwich from opening or falling off when fried, use a toothpick. If you want to bake them in the oven, you can make tortilla packets out of foil.
