Simple actions can be a feat of finesse. When you’re making a burrito this is the most important thing to do. There are a variety of ways that the wrongly made burrito could backfire, from bursting at the ends or splitting in half while you eat it. No one would like to be deprived of filling while eating. It’s good to know that folding them correctly is simple. Follow our instructions below to make perfectly folded burritos each time.
Crispy lettuce, tender meat as well as melty cheese and fresh salsa all wrapped in the warm and delicious burrito shell is among the most enjoyable things in the world. But how do you fold it? Not as simple.
When you’re gnawing on the iceberg’s jaw or tomatoes are spilling out from the bottom, the job of both filling a burrito properly and properly folding it isn’t easy. Take a look at these five steps to fill and fold the burrito.
How to Fold a Burrito
1. Spread the large, warm tortilla on flat surfaces.
A mere 10 seconds per side of hot pans will suffice or you could make it nuke for the same time (in the microwave and flipping the tortilla isn’t needed). For the best burrito, choose an flour tortilla that’s 10 inches wide. This size allows to fill the burrito with more, and a warm tortilla is much more flexible than its corn equivalent. (These made-from scratch tortillas when made into 10-in. circles rather than 7 inches. they are a great alternative to the supermarket-bought.)
2: Disperse your sauces and fillings.
The ingredients should be laid horizontally across the tortilla. To enjoy every delicious flavor in each bite, ensure that you layer ingredients on top of each otherinstead of between them in rows. For instance, put an array of meat and then layer a layer of lettuce over that and then layer a layer of cheese over the first twolayers, etc. For breakfast, you can add eggs cheese, meat, and then vegetables.
Sauces that may make your tortilla spongy like salsa, hot sauce or guacamole, are best placed at the end. (Need ideas? Check out these recipes for salsa!) You should leave two inches of space between the left and to the right of the ingredients in order to allow for easy folding. (Note it’s vital that you don’t overload your burrito. Only around 4 percent of the tortilla’s surface should be filled with the ingredients.)
3. Fold sides over.
With your thumb, and then the other fingers, grab each side of tortilla. The tortilla should be folded gently over the ingredients, so that the edges of both tortillas are almost overlapping, but not touching.
4. Roll it to the top.
Move your thumbs towards the bottom of the tortilla, then begin rolling. After the tortilla has laid over the ingredients make sure that all of the filling is tightly in place. Place any remaining ingredients beneath the fold. Make sure to squeeze the burrito towards you while you roll it. Repeat until your burrito is completely seam facing to the surface. If you want, wrap the burrito in foil before cutting it in half.
Step 5: Enjoy!
