How to Heat Corn Tortillas- the Real Food Way

No matter the heating method, remember to use traditional, healthy fats- not unhealthy vegetable oils.

Oven
On parchment lined cookie sheet, spread out tortillas. Coat with olive oil, coconut oil, pastured lard or butter, rubbing it into the tortilla. Bake for about 5 minutes at 350 until soft and warm.

Toaster Oven- two ways
Dampen a paper towel and wring out. Stack corn tortillas and wrap inside paper towel. Place in toaster oven at 350 for about 5 minutes until soft and warm

OR

Rub oil of choice (olive, coconut, pastured lard or butter) into tortillas. Stack and heat in toaster oven at 350 for about 5 minutes until soft and warm.

Pan on Stovetop

Rub oil of choice (olive, coconut, pastured lard or butter) into tortillas. In medium sauté pan over medium heat, heat tortillas one at a time, about 1 minute per side until soft and warm.

You can also melt oil in saute pan and then place tortillas in the oil, turning with tongs after about 30 seconds. This gets more oil on the tortilla than the previous method so place them on paper towels to drain.
