    From the Test Kitchen

    For this recipe, we’re serving up a family favorite: cheesy enchiladas, filled with a hearty mixture of rice, fresh corn, poblano pepper, and sour cream. We’re wrapping the filling in flour tortillas, and bringing all the flavors together under a layer of melted monterey jack cheese. A fresh salsa made with sweet peppers and shallot helps balance the rich enchiladas.

    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; 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 any 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 or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Halve the lime crosswise. Cut off and discard the stems of the sweet peppers; remove the cores. Halve lengthwise, then small dice. Cut out and discard the stem of the poblano pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then small dice. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling.

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chorizo.

    In the pan of reserved fond, 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.
