As a Mom of 6 I am always on the run once the kids are out of school. From after School sports, to after School clubs,
Ever since I can remember, my Grandma “Ma’Maria” always celebrated “Dia de los Niños” in English it’s known as “Day of the Child/Children”. She would make us our favorite treat for lunch, which was fresh made tortillas and refried beans, she would give us small presents and then she would take us out to the “Children’s day” celebrations around town. There always was a large grocery store that would give kids baby chicks as a gift. It was always our favorite thing to do. When the day was done and we would get home, Ma’Maria would cook our favorite dinner: “Pollo en mole poblano”. Ma’Maria always knew how to make us feel special. This is why I am happy to be able to share with you how we are Celebrating Day of the Child with Herdez!
Growing up with my Mother, we never celebrated it, and I always said that when I had my own kids; I would never miss a single “Dia de los Niños”. A funny and purely coincidental thing:
My husband and I got married on April 30…
On “Dia de los Niños”.

We eat a lot of Mexican food in this house. Now there are a ton of really good Mexican restaurants here. They are practically on every corner yet I still cook it every chance I can.
Enchiladas are a little time consuming and somewhat messy (especially with a camera in one hand) but cheap and feeds an army! I can get two nights out of one tray of enchiladas. Add some Spanish rice and re-fried beans and you will be competing with the corner restaurant! (or so I keep telling my pocket book) Now there are some shortcuts, tonight, I am using the leftover meat from The whole chicken made for tacos (I froze it) and I am using can sauce. I have made the sauce home made. It is by far better home made but time is an issue so the can will have to do tonight! If you don’t have chicken handy, take three chicken breast and bake them with salt, pepper and a little olive oil in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until cooked. Even better, go buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store or Costco! I personally like to freeze leftovers for this purpose. But that’s another blog post entirely!
