Layered tortilla wraps

This layered tortilla hack has been going viral on TikTok, as it's such an easy way to make a delicious lunch with any number of different fillings. Here's my version (plus 10 alternative filling ideas!).

  • 1 large tortilla wrap (I used wholemeal)
  • Small handful fresh watercress
  • 2 tsp hummus
  • 2-3 pre-cooked vegetarian nuggets
  • 1 tsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 3 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 slices gouda cheese


  • Lay the wrap flat on a board, and cut a slit from the centre of the wrap towards you, to the edge of the wrap.
  • Place the watercress in the bottom left corner of the wrap, to the left of the cut you've just made. Above it, add the hummus and nuggets. In the top-right corner, add the chilli sauce and cherry tomatoes. And to the right of the cut, add the sliced cheese.
  • Fold the bottom left of the tortilla upwards, then continue folding to the right, and finally fold downwards over the sliced cheese. See the blog post for photos of the whole process, if needed.
  • Cook the folded wrap in a panini press until golden brown and crispy. Alternatively, if you don't have a panini press, just cook it in a dry frying pan for a few minutes each side. If you like, you can push the wrap down with a spatula or a heavy object (like the bottom of a heavy pan) to help press it together.



These are the fillings I chose to use in my layered tortilla, but of course you can use whatever fillings you like - there are loads of ideas in the blog post.
