You could just drag the file to your Evernote icon (keep it in the dock).  
The file will be imported to your default notebook

Evernote Windows has an import feature, it watches a folder and imports new files
On the Mac, we have to roll our own process.

The Mac OS has a folder actions feature that triggers when new files are added
There are two options for actions

  1. Automator script
  2. Applescript

My process using an Applescript is documented here
A different Applescript process is provided by Veritrope
The actual coding is simple  
tell application "Evernote" to create note from file new_file
tell application "Finder" to delete new_file
