In case you hadn’t noticed, the Mexican culture lives to celebrate family. Heck, we not only celebrate Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparents’ Day, etc. but we even celebrate our dead via Dia de los Muertos. So of course it makes sense that we celebrate el Dia de los Niños -Children’s Day. And what better way to celebrate than with a super fab mexican recipe made easy with HERDEZ® – a Brand that cares about authenticity in both food as well as culture and tradition.
Entomatadas – corn tortillas filled with queso fresco (fresh cheese) and smothered in tomato sauce – always find a way to take me back to my Mother’s kitchen and to my time growing up under my parent’s roof. I loved being called into the kitchen by the smell of my Mom’s tomato sauce and stealing queso fresco crumbles. Yum
I don’t know about your family, but everyone in my family – especially my nieces and nephews – love cheese. Cheese in any form.
So as el Dia de los Niños approaches (April 30th), I found it fitting to highlight my quick and easy Entomatadas, which are made even easier thanks to HERDEZ® Mexican Cooking Sauces. While my Mom’s Entomatadas were made with her red homemade tomato sauce, I’ve fallen in love with HERDEZ® Tomatillo Verde Cooking Sauce and now use it to make mine even easier.
- 1/4 cup white onion, finely diced
- 1/4 cup cilantro, finely diced
- 8 ounces Queso fresco (fresh cheese) crumbled (About 2 cups)
- 2 cups HERDEZ® Mexican Cooking Sauces – Tomatillo Verde
- 1 tbsp oil (feel free to use your favorite oil – I used coconut oil)
- 12 corn tortillas
¡Buen provecho! Enjoy!
How fast and easy is this Mexican recipe? Totally perfect for getting everyone fed and out to celebrate el Dia de los Niños,
which in the states was rebranded in 1997 as Dia de los Niños/Dia de los Libros (Children’s Day/Book Day) by Texas native – Pat Mora. She believed that promoting literacy and connecting children to books went hand in hand with celebrating and supporting the well being of children. Pretty cool huh?
In honor of el Día Del Niño, the HERDEZ® Brand will celebrate the joy that children bring to our daily lives! They’ll recognize their favorite Mexican foods, create an avenue where caregivers showcase the love they feel for the children in their lives and one that invites adults to celebrate their inner child.
