Forget Your Taxes, It's Taco Tuesday!
Straight out of the fridge, store-bought tortillas are lackluster in flavor, cold, and unbendable.
Here are 2 methods to warm them, a tortilla storage tip, and our recipe for Steak Tacos.
Warming Tortillas Using a Gas Flame
When you only need to warm up a few tortillas and you have a gas burner, simply place a single tortilla directly over the medium flame and toast it until slightly charred. This usually only takes up to 30 seconds per side.
Warming Tortillas Without a Gas Flame
If you don’t have a gas flame, you can get similar results by toasting tortillas one at a time in a dry skillet over medium-high heat until softened and speckled with brown spots, 20 to 30 seconds per side.
Warming a Stack of Tortillas
When you need to warm up several tortillas the oven is better for the job. Simply divide the tortillas into stacks of 6, and wrap each stack in foil. Heat the tortillas on the middle rack of a 350-degree oven for 5 minutes. Keep the warmed tortillas wrapped in foil or a kitchen towel until ready to use or they will dry out. (If your tortillas are very dry, pat each with a little water before warming.)
