The TikTok Tortilla Fad We Are Eating Up

This quesadilla hack is a tasty one.

The internet loves a great food hack. I mean, we all loved cereal-size mini pancakes, and we couldn’t get enough of the Nutella two-ingredient brownies last season. But this year, you’ve probably seen the quesadilla hack to rival all hacks — and it’s a tasty one.

Simply put, you fill each quadrant of a tortilla with your favorite fillings. I chose a breakfast burrito theme, with bacon, eggs, cheese, green onions, tomatoes, and arugula. The sky is the limit! And the method is simple.

Slice a burrito-size tortilla from the side to the center, as shown. You’ll essentially have four quadrants. Fill, fold, and toast this delightful treat in a hot, dry pan. Here’s my big takeaway as a tip for you: You almost always want the bottom right quadrant to be cheese so that everything seals up perfectly.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Folded Quesadillas

Makes 6 quesadillas

Prep time 20 minutes

Cook time 20 minutes


  • 6 large tortillas
  • 3 cups baby arugula or spinach
  • 3 medium-size tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 cups shredded Colby or cheddar cheese
  • 12 slices cooked bacon
  • 12 eggs, scrambled 1 bunch green onions, sliced


Heat a large 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Line up your tortillas on a clean countertop. Slice once to the center of the tortilla, halfway up from the edge. Now get creative:

1. Fill the bottom-left quadrant with greens of your choice and 2 tomato slices.

2. Fill the top-left quadrant with shredded cheese and 2 cooked bacon slices.

3. Fill the top-right quadrant with scrambled eggs and a bit of cheese for “glue” (cheese optional).

4. Fill the bottom-right with shredded cheese and sliced green onions.

5. Now fold the bottom-left up and over the bacon, then to the right over the eggs, and down over the cheese and onions.

6. Place the folded quesadilla cheese quadrant in a hot pan, and heat until nicely browned.

7. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
