A note about serious food allergies

Pick a pepper, fill a pepper, roast 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!)

  1. 1

    Start the Peppers

    Stem poblano peppers, seed, and halve lengthwise. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping. Place peppers on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into peppers and place cut side up. Roast in hot oven until peppers are almost tender, 8-10 minutes. While peppers roast, core tomato and cut into ½" dice.

  2. 2

    Start the Filling

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add ground turkey to hot pan. Cook, breaking up with a spoon, until no pink remains, 7-9 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Filling

    Add corn, tomato, taco seasoning, ¼ cup water, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir occasionally until corn is heated through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Transfer filling to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Finish the Peppers

    Fill peppers with filling (including any liquid). Top evenly with cheese. Roast again until peppers are tender, 5-7 minutes.

  5. 5

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook filling to medium-high heat. Add ¼ cup water and cream cheese to hot pan. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, stir constantly until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Stir in sofrito sauce and a pinch of salt. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping peppers with sauce. Bon appétit!
