Wraps, Making Tortilla Wraps

The first step to wrapping is to warm the tortilla slightly so that it becomes more pliable and prevents it from tearing.

Making Tortilla Wraps

You can warm the tortilla in several manners. In a microwave, heat for 10 to 15 seconds.

On the stovetop, (over medium high heat) warm the tortilla in a skillet for 15 seconds per side or wrap in aluminum foil and heat in the oven at 375 degrees for 5 minutes.

Once the filling for the wrap is laid down, fold the right and left edges over the filling towards the center.
