Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove and discard the husks and silks of the corn. Cut the kernels off the cobs; discard the cobs. Quarter the lime. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Halve the tomatoes; place in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Cut off and discard the stem of the poblano pepper; remove and discard the core. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper; add as much as you’d like to the bowl of seasoned tomatoes, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir to combine. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board after handling the peppers.
