Tortillas are Splitting

Hi, I was creating some burritios with chicked and rice for tomorrow's lunch and they actually turned out well (i will post the recipe if any wants it) the problem i had was when i went to wrap them.

I took the tortilla wrap and foldered each side in but when i goto fold the top down or the bottom up it splits. Is there anything i can do to aviod this?

Phil,
I always either soften mine in hot veggie oil, or place them on a hot flat grill pan or large frying pan and soften them. Corn tortillas are brittle when cold and will split...leave about 2 seconds flip 2-3 seconds more remove add filling fold and eat.

Looks like a flour tortilla. Nuke em for a few, before you fill them.

Yep, Phil. Everyone so far is right on. You need to heat your tortillas before you fold them.

Hey, Phil. The method I use is to put the tortillas on a microwave-safe plate, cover with a damp paper towel, and microwave on high for about 30-45 seconds.
