One of Joshua's co-workers told him that she warms corn tortillas directly on the electric element of her cooking stove!
While I'm pretty happy with my makeshift cast iron "grill" method involving 2 pans stacked, Joshua was excited to try this daring new idea. ;)
It actually works really well and is handy if you're just warming a couple corn tortillas! They get toasty, browned, and have a good flavor. We've been using medium heat, and each tortilla takes a minute or two.
Use a metal spatula to flip or remove the tortillas. The burner gets pretty hot!
Don't leave the tortilla unattended on the burner! I'm pretty sure it would catch on fire. :O
We filled our corn tortillas with leftover grilled lamb... delicious!
Have any of you ever cooked directly on the stove elements? My sister-in-law has a flat-top electric stove and cooks her flour tortillas right on the stove top. For some reason, I had never thought of cooking anything on my electric elements... :)
