  • Heat a skillet or a griddle pan to medium-high heat. Cook the tortillas until they start to puff up and are lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until lightly browned on the other side.
  • Place tortillas on a plate and cover with a towel to keep warm while you make the rest of the tortillas.
  • Serve! Note-these tortillas are great eaten plain or you can make tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas, burritos, wraps, etc. They will keep in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Reheat before eating!
