Best tortillas to use

We use store-bought organic flour tortillas that are around 10 inches/25 cm, and we found this is the perfect size for a good toppings/wrap/flavor ratio. Check any decent supermarket and you’ll find plenty of different options that cater to a range of diets and tastes. 

Costco sells two brands of organic flour tortillas, Fresca, and the Tortilla Land brand. 

What are the healthiest tortillas?

It’s most common to find flour tortillas in local supermarkets, however, healthier options do exist. We prefer to use a brand that makes organic flour tortillas. 

There are plenty of supermarkets now offering whole grain tortillas, seed tortillas, gluten-free tortillas, and even grain-free almond flour tortillas. 

Are all tortillas vegan-friendly?

Nowadays, most store-bought tortillas will be vegan and usually are made with just 4 ingredients (flour, oil, salt, and water). Check the label for ingredient information before purchasing. 

Vegetarian breakfast tortilla

For this recipe, we made a healthy vegetarian option and used avocado, mashed black beans, scrambled egg, and cheese. The entire recipe prep and cooking takes around 25 minutes from start to finish and tastes incredible. 

Another advantage to skipping meat ingredients for breakfast is you avoid the mid-morning slump (which is what usually happens when your body is trying to process meat products).

Using beans and avocado instead offers foods that slowly release energy more evenly throughout the morning.

steps on how to make the perfect tortilla breakfast wrap

How to Make TikTok Breakfast Tortilla

The original video showed a simple tortilla hack that’s super easy to do at home and makes a great breakfast that you can prep, make-and-go…

Here’s how;

Step 1- Prep cold fillings

  • Remove the skin and stone from an avocado and mash the avocado with a fork. Add a pinch of salt and white pepper.
  • We used tinned black beans so we didn’t need to do any major prep work for those. We simply gave them a rinse, drained them, and gave them a mash. 
  • We used store-bought pre-grated cheese, so no prep work was required. 

Step 2 – Prepare hot fillings

  • In a small frying pan on medium-high heat, add a splash of olive oil and scramble 2 eggs per person. Once done, set the eggs aside.
  • If you’re cooking bacon, sausages, or any other hot fillings, do it now and it’ll stay warm while finishing off the rest of the recipe. 

Step 3 – Assemble wrap

This is the trick. 

First, lay out a tortilla wrap in front of you, cut a small line from 6 o’clock to the center (see image attached). 

Add fillings to each quarter. 

  • Top left – Mashed avocado
  • Top right – Black beans
  • Bottom left – Cheese
  • Bottom right – Scrambled egg

Next, carefully fold starting with the bottom right quarter (the egg) and fold in an anticlockwise direction. 

Step 4 – Saute wrap and serve

  • In a clean frying pan or skillet on medium-high heat, add a splash of olive oil and add the wrap. Cook for 2-3 minutes a side, or until you see the tortilla starts to become golden and the cheese is melted. 
  • Serve immediately while still hot. 

Breakfast Tortilla Cooking tips

Breakfast tortillas are very easy to make and are ideal for beginners in the kitchen. Here are a few breakfast tortilla cooking tips that’ll help when cooking with one eye open! 

  • Mashed ingredients such as avocado or beans helps the wrap stick together.
  • Avoid using large chunks of meat or whole sausages as these tend to heat unevenly and can break the tortilla. 
  • Prep (chop, mash, etc.) all of your ingredients before you start cooking. 
  • Use a clean non-stick skillet or frying pan for best results. 
  • When cooking your tortillas, ensure that the skillet or pan is very hot. To test add the oil (or butter) and drop a small piece of the tortilla into the oil. If it sizzles, it’s a good temperature.
