Entomatadas are a quick, easy, and vibrant Mexican recipe that hasn’t gained a lot of popularity in the West, but we’re here to change that! Lightly fried tortillas are coated with red salsa and stuffed with creamy refried beans and queso. Load them up with fresh toppings for the ultimate lunch or dinner!


Add your tomatoes, jalapeño, garlic, onion, and vegetable broth to a blender and mix on high until the texture is smooth. Add in more vegetable broth a few tablespoons at a time if it isn’t blending. After heating olive oil in a saucepan, pour in the blended mixture and let it simmer. This process intensifies the flavors, making them more robust and full-bodied.


The tortillas need a quick fry in vegetable oil. They should turn slightly crisp yet remain flexible enough for folding. Transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.


Dip the fried tortillas in the salsa to coat both sides. Transfer them to a serving plate and add a scoop of queso fresco and refried beans to the center. Fold them in half and repeat with the remaining tortillas. Happy eating!
