When you want something filling and cheesy, a quesadilla is one of the fastest things you can whip up in the kitchen, although, sometimes, you may not be able to master the tortilla flip properly, which can lead to disaster in the form of a very sad-looking meal. Per usual, the people of TikTok know a hack for making the perfect quesadilla each time, and all it requires is some simple folding to get it right.
Now I understand that a quesadilla isn’t the most challenging dish, but there’s always room for improvement and perfection, no? To start, you’ll lay your tortilla or other wrap flat and then make a small cut on one side, going only halfway through the wrap. Then, picture the tortilla as having four different quadrants where you can add different toppings. In one video, TikTok user @alpafoodie used za’atar in one section, then cheese, spinach, and homemade chili sauce in the other sections following.

Before heating the quesadilla up on a pan (or between a panini press), you’ll want to fold the wrap starting with one of the quarters that is next to the small cut you made. After that, it will be easy to follow the folds and put each section on top of one another making every topping a new layer. Once you heat it or toast it to your liking, you’ll have a perfect handheld meal that requires no additional cutting. In theory, this means you can easily double fist quesadillas when done correctly. Do with that what you will.
