If you want to find a traditional Mexican dish to cook for your family, then try this easy recipe for Entomatadas. They are folded corn tortillas that have been fried in oil then bathed in a traditional tomato sauce. Sound amazing? They are. This recipe calls for vegetable oil, tomatoes, green chile pepper, onions, garlic cloves, tortillas, farmers cheese or cottage cheese, and avocados. They taste savory and sweet and amazing.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 tomatoes (ripe)
  • 1 chile pepper (green)
  • 1/2 onion (peeled and minced)
  • 1 garlic clove (peeled and minced)
  • 6 tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup cheese (farmer’s, or cottage cheese)
  • avocado (pitted and sliced)

Directions

  1. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to a skillet on medium-high heat. Roast the outer layer of the tomatoes and chile pepper for a few minutes.
  2. In a separate skillet, add 1 tablespoon of oil and saute garlic and half of the onion until the onions become transparent.
  3. Add the tomatoes, chile pepper, onion, and garlic to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
  4. Pour the sauce into a large pan and cook for 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  5. Mix the remaining onions with the cheese in a separate bowl.
  6. Add the remaining oil and heat up all of the tortillas in the pan, making sure that each tortilla absorbs some of the oil.
  7. Dip each tortilla into the tomato sauce. Once the tortilla is completely coated, set it on a plate, fold the tortilla in half and fill it with cheese and onions.
  8. When you serve the stuffed tortillas, make sure to pour some extra tomato sauce on top of each “entomatada.”

This was a true Mexican recipe that was simple to make and did not require a lot of time. It was swimming in delicious sauce and had that true Mexican taste to it. I loved how it wasn't super spicy like many other Mexican foods that I have had. This 4 star recipe will be a part of our dinner table again real soon.
