Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
How to Warm Tortillas
To warm tortillas in the microwave, wrap them in paper towels and microwave on HIGH just until warmed. Cooking time varies by number of tortillas. For 1 tortilla, microwave 15 sec.; for 2 tortillas, microwave 20 sec.; for 6 to 8 tortillas, microwave 1 min.; and for 12 tortillas, microwave 1-1/2 min.
Tip 2
Nutrition Bonus
This delicious foil-wrapped grilled fish is seasoned with chiles which add both a kick of heat and good source of vitamin A. And as a bonus, the pineapple adds both contrasting sweetness and a good source of vitamin C.
