An enchilada is a tortilla rolled around a filling, covered with sauce, and baked. It sounds simple, but when the flavors of black beans, poblano pepper, and piquant seasoning blend come together, “simple” is hardly the word to describe it. Poblano peppers carry a mild, smoky flavor, but different peppers from the same plant have been known to vary in spiciness. Don't sweat it if you prefer it a little less caliente: since you're the chef, you can add as much or as little of the peppers as you like. You simply won't believe how satisfying this vegetarian take on a Mexican classic can be. Tip: Easiest way to remove jalapeño stems and seeds: remove ends, then hold upright. Carefully slice the pepper into four pieces, leaving stem and seed to discard.
