   If you haven't tried flame-toasted wheat tortillas
   you're in for a treat. Like toast they can be topped
   in endless ways.
   
   Place a tortilla directly over a medium high gas
   flame, or place on a cookie rack set over an electric
   burner.  Toast until surface becomes lightly flecked
   with char, about 10 to 20 seconds, and  tortilla
   begins to fill with steam.  Turn over and toast the
   other side.  A perfect tortilla will fill with steam
   and puff up if it has no tears or holes.
   
   If desired, brush tortilla with oil or butter.  Place
   in a towel-lined basket while toasting the remaining
   pieces.  Serve piping hot.
