From the Test Kitchen

Enchiladas are a time-honored favorite in Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisines. After all, what’s not to love about tortillas wrapped around a hearty filling of vegetables, spices and more—then smothered with sauce and cheese? For distinctive flavor, we’re making these enchiladas rojas (or enchiladas in red sauce) with three kinds of sautéed mushrooms: round-capped cremini, ruffled maitake and fanned oyster. Mild Monterey Jack melts down perfectly in the oven, topping off the dish with layers of satisfying texture.

tips & techniques
Cook the rice:
1 Cook the rice:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. In a large pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt and 1 cup of water; heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat and fluff the cooked rice with a fork.

Prepare the ingredients:
2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the cremini mushrooms; using your hands, tear the maitake and oyster mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Peel and small dice the onion. Peel and mince the garlic. Quarter the lime. Grate the cheese. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems.

Cook & drain the spinach:
3 Cook & drain the spinach:

While the rice continues to cook, in a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted. Transfer to a strainer; hold or rest over a bowl. Using a spoon, press down on the cooked spinach to release as much liquid as possible; discard the liquid. Transfer to a cutting board and roughly chop; transfer to the pot of cooked rice. Wipe out the pan.

Place the tortillas on a work surface. Evenly spread about ¾ cup of the filling into the bottom of a baking dish. Divide the remaining filling between the centers of the tortillas; tightly roll up each tortilla around the filling. Carefully transfer the rolled tortillas to the baking dish in a single layer, seam sides down. Evenly top with the remaining sauce and remaining cheese. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let stand for at least 2 minutes. Divide ⅔ of the baked enchiladas between 2 plates (you will have extra). Garnish with the remaining cilantro. Enjoy!
