A little clarification on cooking the tortillas prior to filling them. I use a small non-stick frying pan and heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in the pan. One at a time, I place the tortillas in the pan, heat one side first, flip over and heat the second side. I then remove the tortilla from the pan and place it on paper towels to remove the excess oil. Continue with the other tortillas, adding more oil as needed.
