Serving suggestion: Use these thin, Mexican-style tortillas in tacos, enchiladas and quesadillas. We like to top our tacos with kimchi and a hit of hot sauce.

Store in the refrigerator and use within a week for optimum freshness. You can also freeze and reheat when ready to use, but know that stale tortillas are perfect for chilaquiles or homemade chips.

To reheat: To reheat on the stove, slide tortillas under running water, then put it on a hot, dry skillet. Flip after about 30 seconds to warm the other side. Stack tortillas on top of each other, wrapped in a towel; the resulting steam softens tortillas, making them perfect for tacos. You can also quickly shallow fry a corn tortilla in a skillet with just enough oil to cover, hot enough that it bubbles instantly when you slide the tortilla in. Fry on each side for 30 seconds or so and drain on a paper towel. Or, to crisp into a tostada, fry for a couple of minutes on each side until golden brown. The trick is to truly keep an eye on the clock. Finally, you can steam in a microwave. Just wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave for 45 seconds.
