In medium bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir in egg, milk and oil until well combined. Pour into pan.

Using paper towels or kitchen towel, peel away skin. Remove stem and seeds, and finely chop. (You can do this step up to a week in advance, just store diced peppers in an air tight container in fridge.)
   
Preheat oven to 350˚F.

In saucepan, bring chicken stock, butter, onion, and diced poblano peppers to boil. Add oregano, cumin, salt and pepper.Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large skillet brown sausage until fully cooked. Remove sausage from pan; set aside. Add corn to same skillet and sauté until golden brown.

In very large bowl, toss together white bread, corn bread, sausage and corn. Slowly add chicken stock mixture, mixing until bread is just moist (not soggy). You may not use all stock. Pour bread mixture into buttered 2.5 quart baking dish. Cover and bake 35-40 minutes.
