Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve limes. Cut one lime into wedges and juice the other lime. Stem poblano peppers, seed, and cut into ½" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping. Remove Italian sausage from casing, if necessary.

  2. 2

    Start the Soup

    Place a large pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and Italian sausage to hot pot. Break into smaller pieces until no pink remains and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Soup

    Add poblano and corn to hot pot. Stir often until peppers begin to soften, 4-6 minutes. Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains. Stir in 2 cups water, chicken base, enchilada sauce, and seasoning blend (to taste). Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir often until smooth and slightly thickened, 3-5 minutes. Remove from burner. While soup cooks, make crema.

  4. 4

    Make the Crema

    Combine sour cream and 2 Tbsp. lime juice in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing soup with crema and crispy jalapeños (to taste). Squeeze lime wedges over soup to taste. Bon appétit!
