☝☝☝ Entomatado


Same with enchiladas.

The names of these dishes come from verbs.


The verb of Entomatado is


It means to pour or mix tomato sauce.


The verb of Enchilada is


It means to make it spicy or to put salsa on it.

For example,

When salsa is spicy and you say hee hee,

¡ Me enchilé!

¡ Estoy enchilado! Estoy enchilado!

(Enchiladas for women)

Is called.


what you spend

Mole is enmolada (verb enmolar),

Beans (Frijol) enfrijorada (verb enfrijolar),

That's what it means.


Stop talking about complicated Spanish here,

Let's cook. (smile)


Entomatado is a Mexican mom's dish.

You can't eat it at a restaurant unless you go to a home-cooked restaurant.

Moles, posoles, enchiladas, chilaquiles, etc.

Almost everywhere I go,

For some reason, there aren't many entomatados.
