How To Prepare Smoked Pork Entomatadas

Entomatadas may be prepared many different ways. Sometimes they are served with raw onion, avocado & with a side of beans. They may be filled with a variety of meats & served with crema or sour cream. The tortillas may be folded in half or rolled much like an enchilada, the choice is yours.

Entomadtada translates to mean covered in tomato. The corn tortillas may be fried for a few seconds to warm them or placed in the microwave a few seconds so they are just pliable enough to fold yet not tear. They should be dunked in the Salsa Roja quickly too as submerging them for a spell will have them fall apart. Organize your workspace to create a bit of an assembly line & success will be yours.
