AlbaLisa organic corn tortillas are 100% natural, contain no additive, and have no commercial hemicellulose to improve their flexibility. Using the right method to heat them up is key to having the softest most moist tortillas that you can roll or fold to prepare your favourite dish.
On our packaging, we suggest using a little water or oil on the tortilla, then, heat it up on a hot skillet, and immediately transfer it to a piece of foil or tea towel. I find foil works better! If you leave your tortillas fully covered for an extra minute, they will soften even more. Wrapping the tortillas airtight makes all the difference!!However, for me, the best way to make AlbaLisa corn tortillas soft is by using the microwave! When using this method, it is very important to use a microwave-safe plastic bag. (Microwavable Ziploc® brand bags meet the safety requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for temperatures associated with defrosting and reheating food in microwave ovens.)
The first step is to make a pouch with foil. Set it aside.
Sprinkle 5 tortillas with a little water and place in the bag. Keep the bag half closed to vent.
Microwave for 1 minute. (You can also heat 10 tortillas at a time. Start with 1 and a half minutes.) If the tortillas are NOT completely flexible and steamy, heat them up for another 20 seconds.
Transfer your tortillas to the pouch.
Serve when ready.
