Entomatadas are basically enchiladas that are covered in a tomato-based sauce instead of a chile-based enchilada sauce like this easy enchilada sauce or this authentic enchilada sauce. They’re traditionally filled with queso fresco (a mild and fresh Mexican cheese), but you can also add more ingredients like beans and meat. Entomatadas are easy to make, suitable for vegetarians, and ready to eat in about 20 minutes. You can choose to keep the sauce mild or up the spice levels by adding more chile peppers.
