Meatlovers! Cook proteins in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. If using diced chicken, pat dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, with 1 tsp. olive oil until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using shrimp, pat dry and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, with 1 tsp. olive oil, until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. If using ground pork, cook with 1 tsp. olive oil, breaking up meat until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Add to pasta as desired.
Cook the Pasta
Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 10-12 minutes.
Reserve ¼ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and return to pot. Set aside.
While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle.
Peel husk off corn and remove kernels from cob, holding cob vertically and carefully slicing downward.
Stem poblano pepper, seed, halve lengthwise, and slice into thick strips. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.
Cook the Vegetables
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
Add 1 tsp. olive oil, corn, poblano (to taste), green onions (reserving a pinch for garnish), taco seasoning, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until poblano and corn are browned and tender, 4-6 minutes.
Make the Sauce
Add cream, reserved pasta cooking water, cheese, pasta, tomatoes, sour cream, and ¼ tsp. salt to pan. Stir constantly until cheese melts, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner.
Finish the Dish
