From the Test Kitchen

These vegetarian enchiladas are stuffed with a hearty filling of earthy mushrooms, tender sautéed kale, and rice cooked with a blend of smoky spices like paprika, ancho chile powder, and more. They’re baked under layers of savory tomato sauce and melty cheddar cheese, then served with a side of cooling sour cream.

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

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. In a medium pot, combine the rice, half the spice blend, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 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.

2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Grate the cheddar cheese on the large side of a box grater.

3 Cook the vegetables & finish the rice:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped kale and 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Transfer to the bowl of cooked rice; stir to combine. Wipe out the pan.
