If you warm up the tortilla, it will become more pliable and less likely to tear. If you only need two or three tortillas, then you can heat them up on medium heat in a skillet or frying pan. If you have a lot of tortillas, then you should take a clean kitchen towel, wet it slightly with water, wrap the tortillas inside and microwave it for 30 seconds to a minute, until they are slightly warm.
