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

instructions
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, 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, 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. 

Prepare the ingredients:
2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the zucchini. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Drain and rinse the beans. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper; remove the core, then medium dice. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling.

Cook the vegetables & make the filling:
3 Cook the vegetables & make the filling:

While the rice continues to cook, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced zucchini in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and as much of the diced pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to the bowl of cooked rice. Add the beans and half the sour cream. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine.

Assemble the enchiladas:
4 Assemble 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 guajillo pepper sauce and cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake the enchiladas & serve your dish:
5 Bake the enchiladas & serve your dish:
