Simply wet three paper towels completely and lay your stack of less-than-awesome tortillas in the center. Wrap the towel over the top of the stack and place in the microwave for 60 seconds. The water from the paper towel will transfer back into the tortillas, rehydrating them without making them soggy.
Take tortillas (still wrapped in paper towels) and transfer them directly to a basket lined with a cloth towel to hold in the moisture and heat. You can also use a small 6-pack cooler if you're heating up tortillas for a crowd or outdoor party. They'll stay pliable and delicious as long as you need them to!
*Note: This will work with cotton towels, but it depends on the towel and if it can handle being in the microwave for the full 60 seconds. If you don't use paper towels in your home, please keep a close eye on them to ensure things turn out well and not with the fire department in your kitchen. Just another reason to add to the list of why we still love paper towels!
