  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove lid and label, if necessary. When ingredient appears in recipe, remove from packaging. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Mix cream cheese, 1 Tbsp. corn muffin mix (reserve remaining for topping), and ½ cup water in provided tray until completely combined. Top with diced peppers, corn, and seasoning blend in a single layer. Sprinkle with cheese.

  2. 2

    Add Sausage and Topping

    Remove Italian sausage from casing. Break into small pieces and place on cheese. In a mixing bowl, combine remaining corn muffin mix, ¼ cup water, and hot sauce (to taste) until a thick, spreadable batter forms. If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Spread corn muffin-hot sauce batter over sausage. Batter will not cover entire meal.

  3. 3

    Finish the Dish

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until cornbread is golden brown and Italian sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 25-30 minutes. While meal bakes, stem cilantro, reserving leaves. Carefully remove from oven. Rest dish, 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro leaves. Bon appétit!
