From the Test Kitchen

These satisfying bowls highlight our smoky poblano pork sausage, which you'll brown in a pan for a rich, caramelized flavor before serving it atop a bed of fluffy rice mixed with peppers and onion. Fresh toppings of lime-dressed tomatoes, creamy avocado, and cooling sour cream-cilantro sauce add balance to every bite.

1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Quarter the lime. Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl. Add the juice of 1 lime wedge. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Halve and pit the avocado. Using a spoon, remove the avocado from the skin, then thinly slice; place in a separate bowl. Top with the juice of 1 lime wedge; season with salt and pepper. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the sour cream and cilantro sauce; season with salt and pepper.

Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. 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, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sausage; break the meat apart with a spoon. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a bowl. Cover with foil to keep warm.
