When I was growing up, I remember my grandmother making stuffed tomatoes. She grew up on a tomato farm in New Jersey and knew 1,001 creative ways to use tomatoes.
She would always tell us stories of her life on the farm — how she and her mother used to cook a big, hearty lunch for the farm hands and how she and her brothers used to play in the barn and outbuildings. I loved listening to her sharing her adventures.
These Enchilada Stuffed Tomatoes from Produce for Kids remind me of her.

While I don’t think my grandmother ever had an enchilada in her 92 year life, I think she would have loved to try this recipe.
