To the anon who said to heat up flour tortillas, holy shit, thank you

I've been cooking for lots of years but never once had thought to heat a flour tortilla up. I just used them right out of the package.

Well about 3-4 months ago I read a post that reminded people to heat them on the stove before using, and holy shit have I been missing out.

Now my girlfriend can't get enough of anything using them, from wraps and burritos to quesadillas and tortillas for hummus dipping.

Start heating up your tortillas, you won't regret it.

        ... are you heating them up? Corn tortillas taste like shit and fall apart when you don't heat them up.

            they are supposed to be fried on a skillet until slightly charred. they are essentially an uncooked food item straight out of the bag.

        true but only if you by the shitty pre cooked ones which are stale, picrel can be found in the coolers by the mexican cheese
        Or you could just make them fresh, its really easy and if you have help in the kitchen its no work at all.

    I learned this trick from working with Mexicans in construction. They always have a little propane burner for their tortillas. I usually heat them on my cast iron pan, but if you have a gas stove, doing it directly on the burner is best.

          You can throw up out of your mouth or in your mouth. As an added bonus, if you try your hardest to only throw up in your mouth but the volume is simply too large for your mouth, you could throw up out of your nose. Finally, if you're throwing up out of your nose and you insist on keeping your mouth clamped but your nostrils aren't large enough to accommodate the surge rate of throw up, it is possible to throw up out of your eyes.

      It is crucial that you heat corn tortillas on a skillet or something. They take on a completely different (better) taste and texture.

    What the frick, is this not common knowledge? Pretty sure tortilla packets here tell you to heat them up.
    Let me try to blow your mind again, you know how stale pizza is borderline inedible? Put it in a pan and heat it. Flip it over too, so the cheese melts a bit. Boom your pizza is great again.

    are you pan-frying them in butter or lard when you eat them up? You can also butter and stack them and roll them into a log in foil and throw them in the oven for a soft not crunchy texture. personally I like them crunchy but when I’m doing a big stack for soft taco night the oven is easier. also gotta pan-fry your burritos. is pan-fry the right term? not like the pan-fry you do to a schnitzel.

    Mix flour salt and water so it's runny; pour a circle into a pan shape it with spoon when the sides curl then flip it(or just best guestimate on that).
    Use like 375 heat or so don't need oil in nonstick adding oil makes it fall apart

    It is superior

    Cook your quesadillas in butter in a pan, they'll get nice and flaky. Or you can use olive oil and it'll get crisp but not quite flaky.

    Also, use a single tortilla and fold it over, and just make two of these instead of laying them flat. It's much easier to flip, especially if you do something like heat up some cooked chicken in salsa and add that to the middle between the cheese (cook off enough liquid from the salsa that it won't make a mess).
