    From the Test Kitchen

    This take on the classic Mexican dish (whose name is a reference to its flute-like shape) features flour tortillas stuffed with a creamy white bean and smoky poblano filling, then tightly rolled and lightly pan fried on all sides for satisfying crunch. A zesty sour cream dipping sauce and a vibrant slaw of cabbage tossed with lemon juice and zest adds bright, punchy flavor to this dish.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, zest the lemon to get 2 teaspoons. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Drain and rinse the beans. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, whisk together the sour cream and half the tomatillo-poblano sauce; season with salt and pepper.

    Make the slaw
    2 Make the slaw

    In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon zest, and the juice of 2 lemon wedges. Add the sliced cabbage; toss to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    3 Make the filling

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced pepper; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the drained beans and spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined. Add the remaining tomatillo-poblano sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and 1/4 cup of water. Cook, stirring frequently and mashing the beans with the back of a spoon, 2 to 3 minutes, or until thickened. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in the grated cheese. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
