Preparation

Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 2 ½ cups water and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and let simmer, 17 to 20 minutes, until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside, uncovered, to cool.

Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the lime into 6 wedges. Drain and rinse the beans. Grate the zucchini. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops.

Start the filling
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the white bottoms of the scallions and cook, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the beans and zucchini; cook, slightly mashing the beans with a spoon, 3 to 4 minutes, until combined; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Add the juice of 1 lime wedge. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside to cool.

Prepare & bake the enchiladas
In a medium bowl, make the salsa roja by combining the tomato sauce and mild chili sauce with 2 tbsp water; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. To the bean mixture, add ¼ of the cooked rice; stir to combine. Place the tortillas on a clean work surface. Divide the filling between the tortillas. Tightly roll up each tortilla and place in an even layer in a large oiled baking dish, seam-sides down. Top with the salsa roja and cheese. Bake, 10 to 12 minutes, until the cheese has melted. If desired, switch the oven to broil and cook, 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown.

Finish the rice & serve
To the pot of remaining rice, add ½ the green tops of the scallions and the juice of 1 lime wedge; season with S&P to taste and stir to combine. Divide the enchiladas between your plates. Garnish with the yogurt, the remaining green tops of the scallions and the remaining lime wedges. Serve the remaining rice on the side. Bon appétit!
