Use lard or vegetable oil in a pan to firm up the tortilla and make a shield from moisture, but don’t do 30 seconds, you have to keep them in there a little bit longer to where they’re almost crispy up a little bit (but not too crispy). Make sure they can be rolled without making a crunch sound, that is too long.
