  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then mirepoix. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 2-3 min. 
  • Add chorizo and Enchilada Spice Blend. Cook, breaking up chorizo into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 3-4 min.** 
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Meanwhile, halve tomatoes.
  • Zest, then juice lime into a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Cut hot peppers in half lengthwise, then remove cores and seeds to make bowl shapes (keep the stems on). 
  • Arrange hot peppers on an unlined baking sheet, cut-sides down. 
  • Broil in the middle of the oven until slightly tender, 3-5 min.
  • Meanwhile, add tomato sauce base, chicken stock concentrate and 1/2 cup (1 cup) water to the pan with the meat.
  • Cook, stirring often, until veggies are tender and sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min.
  • Set aside.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Carefully remove hot peppers from the oven and flip, cut-sides up. 
  • Divide chorizo mixture between hot pepper halves, then sprinkle cheese over top. 
  • Return stuffed hot peppers to the middle of the oven and broil until cheese melts, 1-2 min.
  • Add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) sugar to the large bowl with lime juice. Whisk to combine. 
  • Add spring mix and tomatoes to bowl, then toss to combine.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add lime zest and sour cream to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. 
  • Divide stuffed hot peppers and salad between plates.
  • Dollop over lime crema. 

If you've opted to get chorizo, cook it in the same way the recipe instructs you to cook the pork.**
