Chipotle Cheddar Chard

The bright assorted colors of rainbow chard are especially lovely in this spicy, cheesy dish. Make a double batch and enjoy it as a quesadilla filling, as we did often in the Test Kitchen for lunch.

Serves 6

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 pound chard, stems and leaves separated, chopped (see Note)
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or water
  • 1/4-1 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and chard stems and cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add tomato, broth (or water), chipotle to taste and salt; bring to a simmer. Add chard leaves and cook, covered, stirring once, until just tender, about 2 minutes. Scatter cheese evenly over the chard and cook, uncovered, until the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes more. Serve immediately.
