R-A-V-I-N-G-S – The New York Times

R-A-V-I-N-G-S – The New York Times
Spread the love


Hi, it’s Emily with Five Weeknight Dishes. I got a note from my dear friend Katy this week, a writer I worked with years ago at Jane magazine, telling me that she embraced the message of last week’s newsletter, to eat what you crave, and that to her it meant “broth during the day and TEX-MEX FOR DINNER.” (The all-caps are hers.) This, of course, immediately made me crave Tex-Mex, saucy and bubbly with a thick cap of golden cheese, or a halo of pickled red onions.

And so we have both enchiladas and vegetarian chili below, because that’s what I want to eat, along with a pasta that I made on Saturday night and loved, the eggs Kejriwal I would eat every night, the salmon I’ll probably make on Sunday. Tell me what you all-caps crave, and it may appear in next week’s lineup: [email protected].

Here are five dishes for the week:

1. Chicken Enchiladas

Oh, enchiladas. There are two ways to think about prepping the chicken filling, which I wouldn’t do after work. The first is to use chicken that you roasted, poached or cooked in an Instant Pot over the weekend. The second is to buy a rotisserie chicken and use that. You could also skip the rolling, and layer the tortillas and sauce like you would a lasagna (as in this recipe, also delicious). If you go the lasagna route, double the sauce — just in case. Serve with a salad.

4. Eggs Kejriwal

A totally brilliant recipe that I’ve doubled for a filling dinner, with sautéed kale on the side. I’m inclined to love any egg on toast, but the combination of Dijon, red onion and jalapeño is a revelation here, providing a salty-spicy-sharp bite. Don’t worry about finding the right bread: I once made it on a frozen leftover bagel half (from the good bagel store! No bad freezer bagels). Tejal Rao, who wrote the recipe, told me that made it a genius Indian pizza bagel, a compliment I’ll carry with me always.

5. Vegetarian Skillet Chili

If you can open a can, you can make this recipe, which people absolutely love. I want to urge you not to skip the avocado, the sour cream (or whole-milk yogurt) and those electric-pink onions. Serve with broccoli or green beans if you want a little more.
