Cooking Tortillas "Many people heat store-bought tortillas by wrapping them in a wet towel and steaming them in a microwave, but this will leave them wet and flimsy, with an unpleasant taste. Instead, heat tortillas in a dry skillet over medium-high heat for about 45 seconds on each side, until they are slightly puffed, brown in spots, and very pliable, with a rich, toasty corn aroma." —Roberto Santibañez
