  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Chipotle Crema

    Trim and thinly slice green onions. Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. In a mixing bowl, combine chipotle crema and 2 tsp. lime juice (reserve remaining for corn sauce). Set aside. In another mixing bowl, combine ½ cup water and cornstarch. Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Cook the Sausage

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and Italian sausage to hot pan. Break into smaller pieces until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  3. 3

    Make the Corn Sauce

    Return pan used to cook sausage to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add corn to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 2-4 minutes.
    Stir in cheese sauce, seasoning blend (to taste), and ½ cup water. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until it's thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 1-2 minutes.
    Add cornstarch mixture, ¼ tsp. salt, and 2 tsp. remaining lime juice to pan. Stir occasionally until thickened and sauce coats the back of a spoon, 2-3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Add the Pasta and Sausage

    Add pasta and sausage to pan. Stir until thoroughly combined and pasta and sausage are heated through, 5-8 minutes. Remove from burner.

  5. 5
