I've done the non stick pan method. It doesn't take long and they come out soft and pliable.

Linda is correct. Heating the tortillas makes them easier to work with. My husband (a culinary genius) learned this from a Mexican coworker when she made him some tacos once. Every since then, we always do this. It sounds like the recipe was some what suggesting it but their process seems like a lot of work and a bit messy.

We do like Linda said. We lay them on a dry, non-stick pan & heat one side for a few seconds. Then we flip them over. When they start to puff up a bit we take them off. I like to slightly brown mine as well (not until they start to harden, just to add a little color).

After heating them keep them warm so they remain pliable. You can do this using a tortilla keeper like they have at the restaurants (you can get them at just about any grocery store or Walmart but it is just another "thing" to get in the way). We don't have one so we do one of 3 ways we like: (1) put them on a plate with another plate on top like a lid, (2) on a plate or dish with a towel draped over, or (3) back in the plastic bag we got them from.

I use to wait table & a cook told me the secret to that is to heat it briefly in a large fry pan. their pan is dry nothing in it. I just make the tortilla more plyable.

Hi Cyndi

I actually make this recipe all the time for my family. I skip the first step with the tortillas, and instead just make the mix for inside them, roll them up and cover with enchilada sauce and a little cheese. They still taste great, but it saves the hassle of "preparing" the tortillas.

Hope that helps,

I tried this recipe tonight for dinner: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=797473


The tortillas that I had were already soft so I didn't do the sauce thing but they just fell apart when I tried to roll them. Any suggestions for that?

The recipe is very flavorful and I definitely want to try it again (probably with some chicken next time) but I'd like to get the tortilla issue fixed.

Thanks!
