For corn tortillas version
In the Microwave – Put five or fewer tortillas on a microwavable plate and cover them with a damp paper towel. Microwave in 30-second bursts until they are warmed through. Repeat in batches of five tortillas until all your tortillas are warm.
In a small skillet over medium heat,
heat some vegetable oil. Dip each tortilla in the warm oil for 5 to 8 seconds until the tortilla is warmed through and pliable.
Do not crisp. This makes the tortillas pliable and won’t crack or fall apart..Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat until all the tortillas have been used.
