to warm tortillas for fajitas and tacos
If you need to
heat tortillas to keep them from breaking when making fajitas
or soft tacos you can easily do it in either the microwave
or the oven.
To heat them up
in your oven take a stack of a dozen or so tortillas and wrap
them in a damp dishtowel, then wrap it all in aluminum foil.
Place in the preheated oven at 300°F and heat them up
for a few minutes. Don't use the top and bottom tortilla right
away as they could be slightly damp.
To tortillas up
in the microwave, again wrap them up in a stack with a damp
dishtowel and microwave them for a couple of minutes until
they are warm enough to prevent breaking.
Do not use tinfoil
in the microwave!
Once you heat them
up you can place them in a tortilla container with a lid to
keep the heat in, lining it in parchment paper, or wrap them
in a dry dishtowel until you need them. Why the damp dish
towel? This keeps them from drying out when you heat them,
especially when you are doing a large stack.
