That'll work. Just leave them in long enough to soften and become pliable. Too long and they will be nacho chips.

...and, when they are done my mother always folded them but made sure they didn't close all the way, or they will break when you try to stuff them. We always got the duty of holding them partly open with a wooden spoon until they cooled enough.

You could always hang them over your shower curtain rod, that would be perfect!

I fry tortillas all the time for tacos, enchiladas, etc. One tip is to make sure you HEAT the oil first then just slide the tortillas for a few seconds on each side, unless you want them crispy, leave them in the hot oil a bit longer.
