Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

Cook the rice
1 Cook the rice

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then 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 and cook, uncovered, 30 to 32 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly.

2 Prepare the ingredients

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove the husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of  a box grater). Halve the lime crosswise. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the stems of the sweet peppers; remove the cores, then small dice. Cut out and discard the stem, ribs, and seeds of the poblano pepper; small dice. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling the pepper.

Cook the vegetables
3 Cook the vegetables

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon 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 poblano pepper, half the chopped shallot, and ¾ of the garlic paste; 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 frequently, 1 to  2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add ¼ cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper  if desired.

5 Assemble & bake the enchiladas

Place the tortillas on a work surface. Spread about 2 cups of the filling into the bottom of a baking dish. Divide the remaining filling among the tortillas. Tightly roll up each tortilla around the filling. Transfer to the baking dish, seam side down. Evenly top with the grated cheese. Bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until lightly browned and the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes before serving.
