    Whole foods? Really? Between the CEO who used sockpuppets to pump his stock price, rampant woo, and employee abuse (including opposition to Obamacare), why would you shop there? At least Safeway is honestly a massive corporation. I’m afraid you’ve outed yourself as a Yuppie.

    Soak a kitchen towel in tap water and wring it out thoroughly. Wrap the stack of tortillas securely in the damp towel and microwave on high for 15 seconds for each tortilla. So to warm eight tortillas, microwave for two minutes. This keeps them pliable and moist. Warming them on a flat top or dry pan tends to dry them out too much.
