Tortillas -- a Mexican food consumed by many Americans -- traditionally are used to make burritos, tacos, quesadillas and enchiladas. They can also be substituted for bread, turning a sandwich into a wrap, or paired with eggs instead of toast. Cooking tortillas takes only a few minutes and makes them soft and pliable rather than dry or stiff.

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Place the tortillas on a baking sheet. Do not stack the tortillas; instead, lay each one flat on the baking sheet.

Step 3

Place the baking sheet into your preheated oven.

Step 4

Cook the tortillas for 30 seconds and then flip them over; cook the second side for 15 to 20 seconds. Use tongs to flip the tortillas, as they will be very hot.

Step 5

Remove the tortillas from the oven when they are finished cooking and use them immediately.
