Q: What is the best way to heat a tortilla? I can never seem to get this right. I usually wrap between two damp paper towels and microwave for 15 to 30 seconds, but they tend to come out tough, especially corn tortillas. Sometimes I heat them in a skillet, but I hate making one more dish to clean.
Sent by SarahEditor: Sarah, when we have time, we actually heat them in the oven, wrapped in a wet cloth towel. But that has its drawbacks too (heat up the whole oven for tortillas?) so we often default to the microwave and the tough tortilla.
