Flour tortillas are best stored in the freezer until needed. To soften tortillas, warm them on a hot ungreased skillet or griddle for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. They can be warmed at 150 degrees F in the oven for 15 minutes. They can also be wrapped in plastic wrap and microwaved on HIGH for 15 to 20 seconds.
To fill and fold, place a portion of the desired filling about halfway between the center of the tortilla and the edge nearest you. Fold the edge of the tortilla nearest you securely over the filing, then fold the sides to your right and left to close each end that was left open by the first fold. Finish by rolling the tortilla away from you until it is completely closed.
