Fry method for corn tortillas:
Add a generous amount of vegetable oil to a 10" or 12" frying pan and place it over medium heat. When oil is hot (but not smoking) carefully slide in a tortilla. Allow to fry for only 10 to 15 seconds and then flip the tortilla and fry for just another few seconds. You don't want it crisp, just lightly fried and still pliable.
Transfer tortilla to a double layer of paper towels and blot off excess oil with a clean paper towel. Repeat with remaining tortillas and then proceed with recipe as directed.
