    tips & techniques
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat. Fluff with a fork.

    Prepare the ingredients
    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Cut off and discard the stem of the poblano pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling the peppers.

    3 Cook the Beyond Beef™ & vegetables

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion and sliced poblano pepper; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the Beyond Beef™ and spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking apart with a spoon, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions and tomato paste. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly thickened and the Beyond Beef™ is cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl.

    To the bowl of cooked Beyond Beef™ and vegetables, add the cooked rice, spinach, half the sour cream, and as much of the chopped jalapeño pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Place the tortillas on a work surface. Spread about 3 cups of the filling into the bottom of a baking dish. Evenly divide the remaining filling among the tortillas; tightly roll up each tortilla around the filling. Transfer to the baking dish, seam side down. Evenly top with the tomatillo-poblano sauce and cheese.
