    From the Test Kitchen

    To fill soft flour tortillas, you’ll make a hearty filling of black beans, zucchini, poblano pepper, and spiced rice, then top it all with rich guajillo chile sauce and melty monterey jack before baking. The bold flavors are perfectly tempered by finishing dollops of cooling sour cream.

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, half the spice blend (you will have extra), 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.
