After preparing a wrap the last step is to fold it. Doing so makes it easier to hold and eat. Use the traditional folding method, envelope folding, or wrapping technique to fold your wrap with ease. Use whichever method you like, as it just depends on your personal preference. Wrap it tightly, place the ingredients, and cut the wrap in half if you like. With a little preparation, you'll be able to fold your wraps easily and make the most of your meal!

Steps

Method 1 of 3: Using Traditional Folding

Step 1. Fold the sides of the wrap halfway towards the center

Bring both sides between 2.5 cm and 7.6 cm towards the center of the wrap. Leave about 5 cm and 8 cm between the sides, depending on the size of the wrap.

That way the stuffing won't fall out when you bite into it

Step 2. Fold the bottom third to the center

To make your fold, lift the edge and move it toward the center (about a third of the wrap).

The fold doesn't have to be perfect, but leaving two-thirds of the wrap exposed will make it easier to finish the fold

Step 3. Push the filling back in when rolling the wrap

The filling may start to leak as you fold the wrap. Use your hands to push it back inside. This will help keep the stuffing in place.

Keeping the filling inside the wrap will help firm up the folds. Doing so will also prevent the filling from falling off the sides

Step 4. Keep folding from the bottom to the top until you reach the end

Fold the wrap up and then turn it over to make an additional fold. Make more folds until you reach the end.

  • It may be necessary to fold it up to three times, depending on its size.
  • The amount of filling also determines the amount of folds needed. If it's full, fold it up again. In a thinner wrap, folding it twice is enough.

Step 5. Use a seasoning of your choice to seal the edges of the wrap

Spend a little humus, sauce or any other condiment you like to seal. Use only a small amount to avoid spreading the flavoring throughout the dough.

  • Although this part is optional, it helps keep the wrap folded when you serve and eat it.
  • The wrap can get smeared all over if you use too much condiment.

Step 6. Press the wrap after folding it to hold the fold in place

After folding and sealing the wrap, gently press its wrinkle-free portion. You can do this with your hands or with a spatula.

This will help maintain the shape of the wrap and spread the humus, condiment or sauce over the dough

Step 7. Cut the wrap in half diagonally for easier eating

Use a very sharp knife to make a clean cut. Position knife at a diagonal angle in half of the dough and make the cut. Then separate the halves and serve.

Method 2 of 3: Wrapping the wrap

Step 1. Fold the bottom edge towards the center

Move the bottom of the wrap between 7 cm and 10 cm over the filling and pull to keep everything inside the dough.

This will help keep the wrap tight and keep the stuffing from falling out

Step 2. Continue to roll the wrap until you reach the end of the tortilla

With your hands holding the first fold, roll the bottom of the wrap up. Continue to roll the wrap in an even motion.

  • Wrap the wrap from the bottom to the end.
  • The wrap may come loose and ingredients may fall out if you stop between folds.

Step 3. Spread a little condiment, sauce or humus on the edge of the dough

When you reach the end of the wrap, hold it with one hand and use the other to spread some flavoring along the inside edge. Spread the condiment of your choice about 7 cm to 12 cm of the wrap.

This will help the wrap to be folded when you cut it and eat it

Step 4. Fold the ends of the wrap inwards

When you're done folding it, use your hands to fold the ends inward toward the middle. Fold the ends inward about three times and adjust the corners so they are in place.

This will help keep the wrap tightly folded

Step 5. Cut the wrap in half diagonally for easier serving

Use a very sharp knife to make a clean cut. Position knife at a 45-degree angle diagonally across half of dough. Make the cut.

This is an attractive way to serve the wrap as it makes it easier to show the filling

Method 3 of 3: Using Envelope Folding

Step 1. Fold the sides of the dough towards the center

Hold the edges on each side and place one over the other in the center of the wrap. The overlapping edges should be more or less where the filling ends so the wrap can be folded well.

Step 2. Roll the dough starting from the bottom

Hold the folds carefully with one hand and use the other to bring the bottom halfway down. Gently pull the wrap to seat the filling and continue to roll it until you reach the top edge.

The wrap should be easily rolled into up to three folds

Step 3. Cut the wrap in half and serve on a plate or paper towel

When it's folded, it's ready to eat! To serve it, use a very sharp knife to cut it in half at a 45-degree angle.

You can use a bread knife, for example. Serrated edges make cutting easier

Tips

Heat the wrap in the microwave for about 10 to 15 seconds before starting. The wrap will be softer and easier to fold
