Corn Tortilla's shells?

I have a question on how you keep these playable long enough so when you add the filling they can be wrapped nicely?

I warm mine on a lightly greased cast iron griddle, then fill immediately. For enchiladas, I also then dip the tortilla in a warm sauce. They are very pliable.

Thank you gang, I will try that next time, All I've been doing is to use a George foreman grill set to high, but they don't stay pliable for very long.
