    From the Test Kitchen

    For these veggie enchiladas, you’ll make a hearty filling of squash, hearty kale, and fluffy rice spiced with a zesty sauce of chipotle chile paste and honey for just a touch of complementary sweetness. An irresistibly smoky guajillo pepper sauce and melty monterey jack cheese bring it all together.

    • 4 Flour Tortillas
    • ½ lb Diced Butternut Squash
    • ½ cup Long Grain White Rice
    • 1 Lime
    • 2 oz Monterey Jack Cheese
    • 1 bunch Kale
    • 2 Scallions

    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. 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. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Quarter the lime. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. In a bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the chipotle paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

    2 Cook the rice

    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 and fluff with a fork.

    3 Cook the chorizo

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chorizo. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 7 to 9 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a large bowl.

    4 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the squash; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the squash is softened and the water has cooked off. Add the sliced onion and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly reduced in volume and the kale is wilted. Turn off the heat; stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
