From the Test Kitchen

Enchiladas suizas, or Swiss enchiladas, are said to be named for Swiss immigrants to Mexico who brought their love of dairy to the country’s cuisine, resulting in a range of traditional dishes with European influence. We’re filling our take on the enchiladas with yellow summer squash, poblano pepper and jasmine rice, then covering them in a delectable salsa verde (a tangy, tomatillo-based green sauce) turned “Swiss” with a little sour cream.
