  • Place a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. This part can get a bit messy but we believe it is worth it.  Put a few pieces of paper towel on a large enough plate that will hold all of the tortillas and set aside. Coat each tortilla with cooking spray and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Place, seam side down in skillet.
