Sauce Guide

Suggested Sauces That Help Create These Wraps

You will notice on every filling there is a suggested sauce or maybe more than one, some fillings do not require a sauce because the filling is sticky or moist enabling the wrap to stay in place, but some of the fillings will need a sauce or the wrap will just fall apart!

You can choose your own sauce if you don’t like the suggestion, please note when choosing a sauce try to avoid 90% water based sauces as they soak into the tortilla and are not effective for holding a wrap together.

Make Your Own Tortilla Wraps

Despite translating to Spanish as ‘little cakes’ tortillas actually originate from Mexico and are used to make several Mexican dishes including tacos, burritos and enchiladas.

Unlike tacos, burritos and enchiladas tortilla wraps are not typically Mexican, this said however they are a great alternative to sandwiches. They can be included as part of a buffet or a packed lunch, you could even have them for lunch in the house.

Like sandwiches they can be served either hot or cold and this is the partly the reason why they have become increasingly popular over the past decade. Established sandwich stalls and shops now include them in their range of products.

Although they’re on sale at a range of stores there is nothing quite like a home made tortilla wrap, if nothing else making them yourself allows you to make up your own fillings.

How To Make A Tortilla Wrap

1.Place your wrap on a large flat surface.

2. Use a knife to spread the sauce of your choice around the outside of the tortilla surface. Mayonnaise if a good choice but others such as salsa sauce and tomato sauce are also appropriate.

3. Fill the centre of the wrap with your filling. Try to stack the fillings upwards, covering only a small area of the tortilla. Do not spread the filling so it covers the edges that you have just covered in sauce.

4. Add the salad to your filling. Lettuce is a good base for your salad then add finely chopped cucumber, tomatoes and peppers. Again stack these on top of the filling rather than spreading them over the surface of the tortilla.

5. Pick up the edge of the tortilla which is closest to you, fold this over the filling and salad, tucking it under the filling as tightly as possible.

6. Roll what has now become the tortilla parcel so it is wrapped in the remainder of the tortilla, the sauce on the edge will help it stick. Tuck the edges in at both ends so everything is enclosed.

7. Cut the completed tortilla down the middle vertically to create two smaller tortilla wraps.

If you are looking at catering on a large scale then why not look at hiring or creating your own tortilla wrap platters. There is a range of fillings you can include and this helps make sure there is something for everyone. Tortilla wrap platters would be a great inclusion to any cold buffet.
