A note about serious food allergies

How many cheeses does Mexican street corn gnocchi need? Three, one to hold the lightbulb, one to screw it in, and one to add excellent cheesy goodness to this Italian/Mexican fusion. (Whoops, wrong joke.) Parmesan, Oaxacan, and cream cheese all add their individual highlights to this meal, coming together beautifully with the fresh vegetables and rich gnocchi. As for changing out that flickering lightbulb, you're on your own.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp and bacon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. If using ground beef, place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add ground beef to hot pan. Stir occasionally, breaking up meat, until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Add proteins to meal as desired.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly. Halve tomatoes. Stem cilantro. Stem poblano peppers, seed, halve lengthwise, and cut into ¼" 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.

  2. 2

    Cook the Gnocchi

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 4 tsp. olive oil. Add gnocchi to hot pan and flip often until gnocchi is golden brown, 7-9 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables and Sauce

    Return pan used to cook gnocchi to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot, corn, and poblano to hot pan. Stir occasionally until shallot is soft and vegetables are lightly browned, 5-7 minutes. Add ½ cup cold water, cream cheese, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until creamy, 3-4 minutes.

  4. 4
