How Do I Use a Tortilla Warmer?
Tortilla warmers keep tortillas soft and warm longer than wrapping them in a dish towel or aluminum foil. When heating tortillas in a tortilla warmer, you want to keep them warm with getting dry or brittle. Microwaves warm tortillas in seconds, but they also rob the tortillas of texture and color, especially corn tortillas. Ovens take longer but give better results.
- Terra-cotta tortilla warmers are thick-walled vessels made from clay. They are designed to handle high temperatures without allowing steam or moisture to escape. They will keep your tortillas warm for an hour or so. You can safely put them in the microwave and the oven.
- Plastic tortilla warmers are cheaper and can go in the microwave. They will keep your tortillas warm for about 20 minutes.
- Both corn and flour tortillas are best when warm and moist, so a tortilla warmer that works for one usually works for the other. Keep in mind that corn tortillas take slightly longer than flour tortillas to warm.
