We made this at a cluster meeting a few months ago and had problems using the new saute tongs for dipping the tortillas (they kept tearing) and wound-up using our fingers. What do ya'll do for this step?

I used white corn tortillas which seemed more sturdy but the tortillas were slipping through the tongs after they were dipped. I would use my fingers at home but at a cooking show is a different story.

That was exactly what my director did with this recipe. The tongs were ripping the tortillas so she used her fingers.

I found if I put most of the tortilla in the tongs it worked better.

This is a good time to remind people you are pampered not perfect. And that the tongs work well to pick up the pieces.

I have yet to use my tongs for this. I let one of my consultants borrow them, and just got them back last week!

The Chef's Tongs work better, because they grip a larger area on the tortilla, reducing the stress.

I feel the same way, but then again I remind the guests that it is lasagna and its not how it looks but how it tastes.
I like the comment that we are Pampered not Perfect!! Gonna steal that for tonights show

I have done this several times. Guests can't seem to get it right but if you hold the tongs vertical instead of a little sideways where the tortilla is rolled over the top it works better. Hold the tongs the same direction as the tortilla basically. Also, heard this at a meeting, "I'm Pampered, not perfect. If you want to do my job talk to me after the show!" Thought that was cute.

I am with Ann on this as well - I don't like the saute tongs for this at all - (love them for shrimp though) - Chef tongs - and they are more useful in my eyes anyway - all the chefs are using them -
