Use the following ingredients to make this tasty cheese and onion wrap.
- 1 Large tortilla wrap
- 30 gram Red Leicester cheese
- 1/4 Red Onion
- 2 tbl spoon Chili jam
Large Tortilla Wrap
I recommend you go for a large flour tortilla wrap. it will be strong enough to take the heat and compression of the toasted sandwich maker while being big enough to allow you to cram it full of cheese and onion.
Red Leicester is a great choice for this toasted wrap recipe as it has a milder flavor that a lot of cheeses, such as cheddar, and this goes really well with the red onion.
Additionally, Red Leicester has a good moisture content meaning it will melt really well in the toasted sandwich maker ensuring you get a lovely gooey center for your toasted wrap.
For this wrap recipe I opted for red onion as I didn’t want the onion to overpower the flavor of the wrap.
The chili jam gives this wrap a good kick of sweet and heat and elevates it above the standard cheese and onion flavor.
To be sure of getting a good kick from the chili jam I make sure to add a nice thick layer on the wrap and also I recommend you buy a high quality brand.
I went with Tesco Finest but you can pick up similar items at all major supermarkets and Amazon.
Make this delicious cheese and onion toasted wrap recipe by following these directions.
- Finely slice the red onion

- Fill the centre of the wrap with the cheese and onion

To ensure you get a nice seal on your wrap use a sprinkling of cheese around the final edge as you roll it up.
Another tip for turning this into a great wrap is to make sure you place the filling in the center of the tortilla. This allows you to wrap it up tightly and keeps all the lovely cheese together to melt over the onions.
