From the Test Kitchen

Our spin on enchiladas “verdes” (or green enchiladas) offers plenty of hearty, zesty appeal. To make our salsa verde, we’re roasting tomatillos and a poblano pepper whole, adding a layer of delicious smokiness to their tart and subtly hot flavors. (After roasting, the poblano’s skin can easily be peeled off.) We’re layering the salsa and shredded Monterey Jack cheese on top of the enchiladas—which are filled with Mexican-spiced red quinoa and black beans—before bringing it all together in the oven.

tips & techniques
Cook the quinoa:
1 Cook the quinoa:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Thoroughly rinse the quinoa under cold water. Once the pot of water is boiling, add the rinsed quinoa and cook, uncovered, 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and transfer to a large bowl. Rinse and wipe out the pot.

Roast the vegetables:
2 Roast the vegetables:

While the quinoa cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Remove and discard any husks from the tomatillos. Place the tomatillos and whole pepper on the prepared sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to thoroughly coat. Roast, rotating the sheet pan halfway through, 11 to 13 minutes, or until browned and softened. Leaving the oven on, remove the roasted vegetables from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, finely chop the tomatillos. Carefully remove and discard the skin from the pepper; cut out and discard the stem, ribs, and seeds, then finely chop. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling the pepper.

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
3 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the vegetables roast, peel and small dice the shallot. Quarter the limes. Drain and rinse the beans. Grate the cheese.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the chopped tomatillos, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the chopped pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat and stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste.
