A note about serious food allergies

Pick a pepper, roast a pepper, fill a pepper, eat a pepper… sounds like a nursery rhyme or a slogan. It's our slogan for this meal here, and while the peppers have already been picked, we tell you how to fill your peppers with sweet corn and healthy turkey. We have you top them with melty cheese and roast them perfectly. But eating them? That's all on you. (We're pretty sure you're up to the task!)

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Step 2, breaking up until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Step 2, breaking up until burger is heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start Peppers and Prepare Tomato

    Stem peppers, halve lengthwise, and remove seeds. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Place peppers on prepared baking sheet and top with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into peppers.

    Place peppers cut side up. Roast in hot oven until almost tender, 8-10 minutes.

    While peppers roast, core tomato and cut into 1/2" dice.

  2. 2

    Start the Filling

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add ground turkey to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Filling

    Add corn, tomatoes, taco seasoning, 1/4 cup water, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan.

    Stir occasionally until tomatoes soften and corn is heated through, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish the Peppers

    Carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Fill peppers evenly with filling (including any liquid) and top with shredded cheese. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Roast again in hot oven until cheese is melted and peppers are tender, 5-7 minutes.

    While peppers roast, continue recipe.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook filling to medium-high heat.

    Add 2 Tbsp. water and softened cream cheese to hot pan. Bring to a boil.

    Once boiling, stir constantly until smooth, 30-60 seconds.

    Stir in sofrito sauce and a pinch of salt until combined. Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing peppers on sauce. Bon appétit!
