This post is for my mom, a woman that always offers something to eat to visitors in her house, especially if they are friends and family. I remember when my college friends used to always want to do group assignments at my house, since they knew that my mom would feed them without even asking if they were hungry. One of her favorite dishes that she used to make for us was entomatadas, since they're so easy to make; the process is similar to making enchiladas, but covered with tomato sauce instead.
Entomatadas are well-known all throughout Mexico, and it is a wholesome meal that is loved by all the adults and children in my family. My mom usually made them for an early lunch at around 10:30 or 11:00 in the morning, about the same time we got done doing our morning chores. At home, the last part of our chores was to clean the floors, right after we got done cleaning the bathrooms, counters, and other surfaces. My mind goes back to those times back home, when I would smell the saucepan in the kitchen simmering the tomatoes for the entomatadas. It was almost like a reward for cleaning the house and getting the chores done. By noon we had clean floors, a clean kitchen, and a satisfied appetite.
