you know, i just kind of poke them.  and it depends on how 
long they have been in the cooler.  trial and eror mostly. 
 the tortillas get a little soggy, but that doesn't bother 
us too much.  i do use the smaller flour tortillas so 
there is not so much area to potentially get soggy at the 
ends.  and a thin smear of butter on the tortilla prevents 
the filling juices from weeping outward.
