Cooking Homemade Corn Tortillas Ruins Cast Iron Seasoning

I made homemade corn tortillas for the first time last week. The tortillas themselves turned out just fine, but I destroyed the seasoning on my cast iron pan in the process.

I suppose I could buy another cast iron pan and use it solely for cooking tortillas, but that would be a last resort.
