  • 4 Thomas'® English Muffins
  • 2 Poblano Peppers ,fire roasted
  • 4 Jimmy Dean® sausage ,cut into patties and cooked
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 pound white American cheese
  • 8 ounces diced chiles
  • 14 ounces evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup cilantro ,chopped


Easy Queso

  • Chop  the cheese in small pieces.
  • Heat the evaporated milk and a heavy saucepan until it is just under a boil.
  • Stir the cheese into the evaporated milk.
  • Continue to stir until smooth - about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the undrained chiles and set aside.


  • To fire roast the poblanos hold them over the flame of a gas stove until the skin is blistered and blackened. You can use a plumbers torch, or heat them in an iron skillet over high heat, as well.
  • When the poblanos are blistered put them in a plastic bag and seal. This will make the skin come off very easily. Leave them for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove skin and seeds. To remove skin just gently rub and it will come right off.
  • Cut each poblano in 2 pieces and set aside.


  • Cook the sausage patties according to the directions. 
  • Place the cooked patties on paper towels and set aside.

Poached eggs

  • Poach the eggs until the yolks are beginning to set.
  •  Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel. 
  • Set aside.


  • Toast the English muffins and place 1/2 on each plate.
  • Place 1/2 of a poblano on each English muffin.
  • Top with a sausage patty.
  • Top the sausage patties with one poached egg.
  • Spoon the queso over each egg. 
  • Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and serve hot.
