TikTok is a hotspot for viral trends and fascinating videos.

‘FoodTok’, as it’s often dubbed, is the home of all things cooking, nutrition, and fast recipes that inspire TikTok users to flex their culinary skills.

Now, they’ve managed to make the simple lunch wrap even simpler with a new trick that has gone crazy viral on the app.

How to do the TikTok ‘wrap hack’

The tortilla hack, or the wrap hack as it’s otherwise known, makes folding all the ingredients evenly into the wrap much easier than normal.

Here’s how to do it yourself:

  1. Lay your soft tortilla wrap out on a cooking surface.
  2. Slice your wrap with one line from the outside into the center point.
  3. Fill each corner with whatever ingredients you want. Some may want a different thing in every corner, perhaps doubling up with sauces and seasoning, though others may want to keep their one simple.
  4. Fold a loose corner next to the cut you already made, and fold up onto the next corner. Repeat all the way around the wrap until you have what looks like one quarter.
  5. At this stage, some may choose to grill their wrap, but many eat it just as it is, enjoying the perfectly even spread of ingredients mess-free.

The hack is so easy that countless TikTok users are giving it a go, and creators like fitwaffle are even going crazy with some interesting and bizarre flavor combinations, like desert wraps, pizza wraps, and breakfast wraps.

This viral meal-making hack has ended up making lunchtime just that bit easier for many TikTok users, and will no doubt have inspired plenty more viral food hacks to come.
