    From the Test Kitchen

    These hearty enchiladas are filled with a combination of fragrant, Mexican-spiced rice and sautéed turkey and poblano peppers. For even more flavor, we’re baking them under a smoky-sweet tomato sauce flavored with ancho chile paste and a layer of melty white cheddar. A dollop of lime-seasoned sour cream adds cooling balance.

    • 18 oz Ground Turkey
    • 8 Flour Tortillas
    • 1 15.5-Oz Can Black Beans
    • ½ cup Long Grain White Rice
    • 1 Red Onion
    • 2 Poblano Peppers
    • 1 Lime
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • ½ cup Sour Cream
    • ⅓ cup Guajillo Chile Pepper Sauce

    • 1 Tbsp Ancho Chile Paste
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, half the spice blend, 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. Transfer to a large bowl.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Drain and rinse the beans. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 2 teaspoons. Quarter the lime. Place the grated cheese and lime zest in a bowl and mix to thoroughly combine. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling.

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the turkey, sliced onion, sliced peppers, chopped garlic, chile paste, and remaining spice blend. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the turkey is lightly browned. Add the drained beans. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and the turkey is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Transfer to the bowl of cooked rice; stir in half the sour cream. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
