    From the Test Kitchen

    The filling for these cheesy enchiladas comes together with a hearty mixture of red rice, fresh corn, poblano pepper, and guajillo chile sauce. We’re wrapping the filling in flour tortillas and topping with a layer of melty white cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream.

    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the rice. Cook, uncovered, 30 to 32 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove any husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then small dice. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Halve the lime crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Grate the cheddar on the large side of a box grater.

    Cook the chorizo
    3 Cook the chorizo

    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 bowl.

    Cook the vegetables
    4 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the corn kernels in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned (be careful, as the corn may pop as it cooks). Season with salt and pepper. Add the diced peppers, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the tomato paste. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add half the guajillo sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and ¼ cup of water. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the liquid is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. 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. Divide the remaining filling among the tortillas.

Bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until lightly browned and the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven; let stand at least 2 minutes before serving. Serve the baked enchiladas topped with the remaining sour cream and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
