Every once in a while, the wheel is reinvented. If weíre lucky, smart, or even particularly ingenious, we find new ways to do old things. These novel approaches can flip convention completely on its head, or ever so slightly tweak a well-known formula. The latter is precisely the case with a recent internet hack thatís been sweeping the internet.

It all started on TikTok (duh, where else?), when, on December 29th, user crystalscookingfun took a flour tortilla, cut a slit along its radius, placed a single ingredient into each of the circle's quadrants, folded accordingly, and griddled the whole affair to crisp perfection in a panini press. Her folded wrap included a sliced chicken cutlet, spring mix, tomatoes, and grated cheese. Here's the general formula:
It wasnít until the next day, however, when TikToker ellcarter1 stuffed her spin on the original with breakfast foods (bacon, scrambled eggs and cheese) that the technique truly took off. Her video has since amassed more than 6 million views and spawned enough reproductions to populate a small country.

Plus, it solves a bevy of problems. It replaces the often tricky task of rolling a flour tortilla bulging with ingredients into a sad excuse for a burrito. It also allows you to have a bit of every ingredient in each bite, and thatís a cause I can get behind. Once you master the technique, the possibilities are, quite literally, endless. Since its debut online, the trick has appeared across all corners of the internet. Online, some are going the classic route, while others are giving it the dessert treatment and subbing a crepe for the tortilla.
I asked the brilliant editors at Food52 to submit their own four-ingredient fillings. Here are a few they came up with:

Brinda Ayer, Editorial lead: Soy-marinated baked tofu or eggs, sriracha mixed with cream cheese, kimchi or kraut, scallions

Arati Menon, Senior editor: Grilled/roasted eggplant, kale slaw, lemon aioli, crumbly feta

Jess Kapadia, Senior editor: Pulled chicken, smoked gouda, pickled red onions, BBQ sauce

Emma Laperruque, Food editor: Fried egg, crispy Taylor ham, American cheese, hot sauced ketchup

Rebecca Firsker, Assigning editor: Tuna, cheddar, caramelized onions, pickles

Caroline Mullen, Assistant lifestyle editor: Chicken cutlet, cheddar, romaine, honey mustard, and mayonnaise

These are all fabulous suggestions. I might go the caprese route and fill one with pesto, tomatoes, mozzarella, mortadella, a drizzle of olive oil. and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt. Or I might take a tip from Saltieís famous Scuttlebutt sandwich and layer spiced aioli with pickled vegetables, a smattering of feta, sliced hard-boiled egg and some ham, for good measure. The wrap is your oyster!

I actually just like to use two tortillas and crimp the edges down with my fingers in the pan and cut it into 6ths. Takes all kinds though, reckon.

you know drat well all the tomatoes slopped right out of that 3rd fold, and it's stupid to not fold the cheese up to the main chunk instead of folding all that loose crap over to make it go clockwise in the photo. "How can I make a quesadilla, but pretentious and unnecessarily complicated?"

I donít see why having tortilla separating your ingredients from touching each other is desirable, itís just dry bread

yeah usually itís cheese or maybe butter or another oil that is the glue that binds with the bread that creates the consistency that makes it tasty and crispy etc
