Vegetarian Enchiladas

Giving the tortillas a dip in hot oil not only makes them pliable (they won’t tear apart as you roll them up), but it also improves their flavor and texture (read: they won’t disintegrate into mush). This is especially important if you’re using slightly dry or very thin tortillas. If you’re using fresh, high-quality tortillas, you can skip the fry: Just warm up each one in a dry skillet.
