Fresh Greens Enchiladas

3 poblano peppers
4 tomatillos, husks removed
1/4 cup dry-roasted unsalted peanuts
1/2 medium onion, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
Salt to taste
Water as needed
8 six-inch corn tortillas
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cups shredded seasonal greens–collards, kale, chard, turnip greens, spinach, or broccoli rabe
1/2 cup feta or queso blanco cheese

1/4 cup cheese, same type as above

Roast the peppers and tomatillos: Place them under the broiler until charred and softened, turning occasionally. The tomatillos will be done sooner than the poblanos; remove them as soon as they show signs of charring. Allow to cool. Peel and seed poblanos and chop coarsely. Cut tomatillos into quarters.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Make the sauce: Place roasted poblanos, tomatillos, peanuts, onion, cilantro, and salt in a blender or food processor and process until smooth, gradually adding water to make sauce the desired consistency.

Make the Filling: Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add greens. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until just wilted.

Fill a shallow pan with boiling water and dip each tortilla in it for around 10 seconds to soften. Fill each tortilla with 1/8 of the greens and a tablespoon of cheese. Roll up and place in a 9-inch by 9-inch baking pan. Pour sauce evenly over the filled enchiladas. Sprinkle with cheese topping.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Serve warm.
