If your kiddos are tiring of same old lunchbox sandwiches, why not give tortilla triangle wraps a try?!
Also the perfect idea for when you’re getting low on sandwich bread.
See our video tutorial below along with some creative tortilla triangle pocket ideas…dairy-free, of course.
That’s right, I’ve been making dairy-free lunch sandwiches for my kids for sixteen years.
And it was time to find some new ways to mix things up.
Since tortillas are one of our Aldi staples, I thought to myself, why not give tortilla sandwiches a try.
Tortilla roll-up’s have certainly been a great way to serve lunch over the years.
But the quadrant sandwiches looked like a whole new level.
And I was ready for it!
As you can see, these quaint little pockets fit great in our bento lunchboxes.
I also love that you can make a variety of types of sandwiches with this easy technique.
That means the kids won’t get bored!

Now onto tortilla quadrant inspiration.
TORTILLA QUADRANT SANDWICH VARIATIONS
Tortilla quadrant sandwiches work best with 4 different ingredients per sandwich.
Hence, the word quadrant.
But before you think four is a lot, condiments count.
So here are some of our favorite quadrant sandwich combos.
Do make sure all the ingredients and brands are safe for your allergies, first.
What works for us may not work for you.
COLD QUANDRANT SANDWICHES
- LUNCH MEAT – ham, salami, lettuce, dairy-free cheese or mustard
- PBJ – 2 quadrants peanut butter (or substitute), 2 quadrants jelly
- SNACK – peanut butter (or substitute), honey, banana slices, melted dairy-free chocolate
HOT QUADRANT SANDWICHES
For hot quadrant sandwiches, cook the ingredients that need cooked. Then build your quadrant sandwich and enjoy. Or you can put your tortilla pocket on the stovetop griddle and grill both sides for a more toasty dish. Yum!

HOW TO MAKE TORTILLA QUADRANT SANDWICHES
These little tortilla sandwiches are so easy and fun to make.
Be sure to see our video tutorial in this post.
It will probably make more sense than these written instructions. But I’ll try!
1. Lay out one tortilla.
2. Cut halfway across the tortilla with a knife or pizza cutter.
3. Fill each of the four quadrants with ingredients or condiments.
4. Starting with the quadrant right of the cut…fold up, left, down.
5. Enjoy your tortilla sandwich, mess-free!
