Even though these enchiladas take a bit of time to make, they're not difficult and they're worth it. I make these when I have left over crab, shrimp, or other seafood, or even shredded cooked chicken. You can use any combination you like or have on hand. If using chicken, I suggest increasing the chile powder a bit, according to your taste. You can also substitute a can of diced green chiles if you don't have a poblano or don't want to roast one.
From the Washington Post:
This clean-tasting stew is low in fat and calories. The plantains soften but hold their shape here, and they lend more potassium than bananas would. The chicken is easier to cut when it's either very cold or partially frozen. If you have time, pop it into the freezer for 15 minutes beforehand. Serve with your favorite flatbread crackers or over white rice.
This is a great use of leftover rice. It's important to use Thai sweet basil to get the authentic Thai restaurant taste. And don't skip the fish sauce, it smells strong in the bottle, but it blends in nicely with the other ingredients when it's all put together. Also, make sure you use chilled rice, or you'll end up with mush.
Nice, light asparagus salad that's easy and quick to throw together. Goes great with seafood, or other rich foods. Note that the dressing probably makes more than you'll need for the salad, so you'll have some left over for other salads.
Don't be put off by all the steps, this is a pretty easy recipe. You can also use the glaze and sauce on a whole roast duck, instead of duck breasts.
The duck breasts can be seared a day in advance; the pomegranate glaze can be prepared in advance as well; cover and refrigerate separately. When ready to cook, bring the seared duck to room temperature, then roast in a 350-degree oven for 7 minutes or until medium-rare (135 degrees when measured with an instant-read probe thermometer).
Serve with quinoa or mashed potatoes.
