My Ultimate Cooking Secret to preventing dry re-microwaved food.

Im a newbie to cooking but I sure have eat a lot of microwaved food in the past.

Take a web napkin and simply place it on top of your food dish. This creates vapor in the microwave which keeps the moistness from food being lost.

I get the same effect for softening stale/dried bread, tortillas, pita and rolls by slightly dampening a clean dish towel and wrapping the bread in it before nuking for maybe a minute (not long or it will get harder! Microwave ovens vary a lot in power, so start with maybe a half minute).
