Most of our lives are busy and we don’t have the time to prepare three meals every day. Once lunchtime rolls around you may be pressed for time and just want to eat something quick without putting much work into making the food. 

Freezing food ahead of time so you can pull it out later, thaw and reheat is a simple way to persevere your food for future use. 

Wraps can be a healthy lunch meal that’s easy to make and fills you up. So, if you want a healthy and easy meal for your noon break, can you freeze wraps?

You can freeze wraps to save them from quick easy lunch or supper later. Wraps can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Can You Freeze Wraps?

To freeze wraps just assemble them as you normally would. Remember that only certain types of wraps can be frozen. Wraps containing mayo or lettuce will not freeze well but other types should be fine to store in the freezer. 

Tortillas actually freeze really well and once you’re ready to use them they will still taste good after they have been stored in the freezer. 

You can store flour or corn tortillas in the freezer and use them later. 

All you have to do to defrost them is to put them into the microwave on the defrost setting for a few seconds and there you go. If you want to put the tortilla in the fridge to thaw instead, just set them there for a few hours and they will soften up so you can make your wrap. 

It’s good to make your sandwiches ahead of time because it will save you time and money in the long run. If you have a busy schedule and lifestyle you probably don’t want to spend the time making your lunch. Instead, freeze it ahead of time for a quick and yummy meal.

Can You Freeze Tortilla Wraps? 

Freezing food is great when you want to save some time and money. One of the times we want a fast meal is most likely lunchtime. If you are a sandwich fan, wraps may be your go to lunch. 

So, can you freeze tortilla wraps?

You can freeze tortilla wraps by following some simple steps to save them for later.

If you want to use them all later you can just pop them into the freezer in the package they were bought in. If you want to use them one by one then it is best to put a piece of parchment paper in betweens each tortilla and put the whole stack in a freezer bag, removing as much air as possible. 

You can also freeze corn tortillas and these are packaged for freezer storage the same as the flour tortillas. Both types of tortillas typically last for about 6 to 8 months in the freezer if they are frozen using the proper steps. 

When you want to use them just thaw in the fridge for a few hours and you are all set.

Can Sandwich Wraps Be Made Ahead Of Time? 

You like to save time and money and so making food ahead of time is your thing. But you aren’t sure if sandwich wraps can be made ahead of time. Can you make them early and save them for later?

You can make sandwich wraps ahead of time and freeze them to use in the upcoming weeks. But there are certain foods that can and cannot be frozen.

You can definitely make sandwich wraps ahead of time and freeze them for later. Just about any sandwich wraps can be frozen except for those with a mayonnaise base. 

Mayo doesn’t freeze well so it is best to just apply these condiments later when you’re ready to eat your delicious wrap. 

Moist and juicy veggies like lettuce, tomatoes, and red pepper can get soggy in the freezer but if you refrigerate the filling then it should stay good for about 3 days. Other than that, to save you time and money, you can freeze sandwich wraps for future use. 

Make them ahead of time so that way you don’t have to work too much when you are wanting a quick lunch.

How Do You Defrost Tortilla Wraps Quickly? 

When it is time to eat your wraps, you don’t want them to be soggy but you want to thaw them in the fastest way possible. How do you defrost tortilla wraps quickly so they still taste good?

The quickest way to defrost tortilla wraps is to microwave them on defrost for a few seconds at a time (per tortilla) until they are softened. If you want to defrost an entire pack of tortillas it will typically take 3-4 minutes on defrost. 

If you have followed the right steps when freezing them then they should still taste good but thawing them the wrong way may make your tortillas an unsatisfying texture. Use the microwave option to defrost your tortilla wraps or if you are thinking about it you can put them in the fridge overnight or that morning to thaw. 

Tortillas should thaw in a matter of a few hours in the fridge. 

But if it is easier for you to just pop them out of the freezer and thaw in the microwave you can do this. 

Now, some wraps are meant to be cold. For these wraps, you don’t want to thaw them in the microwave because they will get soggy and not taste good. 

Instead use the fridge method to defrost the wraps and they will be softened when it’s lunchtime. 

Final Thoughts

If you are busy and want to freeze wraps for a quick lunch in the upcoming weeks or months, you can freeze them! You can only freeze certain wraps and tortilla covered ones freeze well for later. 

Be sure they are wrapped properly and you can freeze the wraps for up to 3 months. Once it is time to eat the wraps, you don’t want to wait very long for them to do that so just defrost them in the microwave. 

Now you can save your wraps for later without worrying if they will go bad. This can be a way to save time when you don’t want to fix the wraps at lunchtime.
