Easy BLT Tortilla Wrap Sandwiches
A BLT tortilla wrap is a quick and easy lunch idea that’s perfect for busy weekdays. Make BLT tortilla wraps in advance, wrap them up in foil, and pop them in the fridge, and you’ve got yourself a tasty grab-and-go snack ready for when you’re on the go!
They also make great alternatives to sandwiches for picnics and lunch boxes for the kids.
Why You’ll Love BLT Tortilla Wrap Sandwiches
- They’re filling. Tortilla wraps are a hearty lunch option that will keep you satisfied until dinner time.
- They’re portable. Wraps are easy to grab and go. No need for plates or utensils – just roll ’em up and enjoy! This makes them great as an out-and-about meal or an afternoon snack.
- And they’re delicious! Bacon, lettuce, and tomato are a classic combo, and hot sauce mayo and nigella seeds take things to next level delicious.
This wrap is packed with all the classic BLT flavors that you know and love, plus a few extra ingredients to make it even more satisfying.
- Bacon: Cooked to crispy perfection. To make assembly even quicker, next time you’re meal prepping or have bacon for breakfast, cook extra, and you’ll have some on hand to make yourself this BLT wrap in less than 5 minutes!
- Wholemeal Flour Tortilla: Because wholemeal wraps contain more fiber than the regular white variety, this meal should help keep you feel fuller for longer.
- Arugula (Rocket): Peppery and loaded with nutrients.
- Tomato: Use your favorite variety for the best flavor. On this occasion, I’m using some Nattoora Winter Selection tomatoes that I found on Ocado.
- Natural Avocado Oil Mayo: I’m using Hunter & Gather Avocado Oil Mayonnaise as it’s sugar-free, contains no inflammatory oils, and is made with all-natural ingredients.
- Hot Sauce: I like Cholula Hot Sauce because it contains no added sugars.
- Pepper: For a little extra spice.
- Nigella Seeds: These tiny black seeds pack an awesome punch adding some subtle onion flavor to the wraps.
How to Make a BLT Tortilla Wrap: Step-By-Step Instructions

Combine the mayo and hot sauce to make the spicy mayo.

Recipe Substitutions and Variations
Don’t let ingredients you don’t like or can’t get hold of at your local grocery store stop you from whipping up a great-tasting lunch wrap. There are plenty of options to make the recipe work for you. Here are some examples:
- Tortilla Wraps: Instead of wholemeal wraps, try seeded wraps, spinach wraps, or sweet potato wraps. There are lots of variations on the market now that provide extra fiber and other nutrients compared to plain white wraps. Alternatively, brown pitta bread is great.
- Lettuce: Shredded iceberg lettuce, baby spinach, or butterhead lettuce all taste great in tortilla wraps.
- Tomatoes: If tomatoes are out of season where you are, then red bell peppers, pickled red onions, or grilled zucchini (courgette) are tasty substitutes.
There are also many ways to customize your wraps. Here are just a few ideas:
- Vegan ALT Wrap: Replace bacon with creamy avocado slices to make this a vegan Avocado, Lettuce, and Tomato wrap. Yum!
- Change Up the Protein: In addition to, or instead of bacon, try chicken, turkey, boiled eggs, smashed black beans, or hummus.
- Low Carb or Keto BLT Wraps: Switch out the flour tortilla for lettuce wraps. Little Gem or Romaine lettuce is great for this.
NUTRITION TIP: Tomatoes are a rich source of vitamin C, lycopene, beta-carotene, and potassium, among other nutrients, that are linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Studies have shown that consuming tomatoes can help improve cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower the risk of blood clots, which can cause heart attacks or strokes [Source].
To make a BLT wrap part of a lunch or dinner meal, here are some serving ideas:
With Soup: In an office I worked in years ago, the canteen used to serve soup and a sandwich every day. It was a BIG THING. And I’m still a fan of the combo. Try serving the BLT wrap alongside cauliflower soup, broccoli cheese soup, or tomato soup.
With Potatoes: Who doesn’t love a side of potatoes with a meal? Pair your BLT wrap sandwich with some homemade sweet potato wedges, potato salad, bubble and squeak, or roasted new potatoes with shallots.

Frequently Asked Questions
BLT wraps are best eaten in moderation as part of a varied and balanced diet. As bacon is a processed food that is high in saturated fats, moderation is certainly key. You can use the nutrition panel in the recipe card as a guide to see if the recipe can fit into your personal nutrition goals.
No! Instead of hot sauce mayo, try other condiments like regular mayonnaise, horseradish mayo, or avocado crema. BLT wraps also taste fab with cream cheese.
