    • 2 ears Of Corn
    • 1 Poblano Pepper
    • ½ lb Grape Tomatoes

    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the tomatoes. Zest the lime to get 2 teaspoons (or use the small side of a box grater); place in a bowl. Halve the lime crosswise. Squeeze the juice of both lime halves into a separate, large bowl; add the halved tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater; transfer to the bowl of lime zest. Stir to thoroughly combine. Remove the husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Cut out and discard the stem, ribs, and seeds of the pepper; medium dice. Combine the corn kernels and diced pepper in a bowl. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling the pepper.

    2 Make the guajillo rice

    In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Add the guajillo chile sauce and crème fraîche; stir to thoroughly combine. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the prepared corn and pepper in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly  browned (be careful, as the corn may pop as it cooks). Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to the bowl of seasoned tomatoes; toss to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
