Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 1, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 1, breaking up turkey until no pink remains and turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start the Chili

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add ground beef, diced peppers, and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir occasionally, breaking up meat, until peppers start to soften, no pink remains on ground beef, and ground beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Drain excess grease from pan, if desired.

  2. 2

    Finish the Chili

    Stir 2 tsp. tomato paste (you may use any extra as you wish!), fire roasted tomatoes, BBQ sauce, ¾ cup water, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper into hot pan until combined. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer. Cover, and stir occasionally until combined, peppers are tender, and chili has slightly thickened, 4-5 minutes. Remove from burner. While chili cooks, make crema.

  3. 3

    Make the Crema

    Combine sour cream and half the green portions of green onions (reserve remaining for garnish) in a mixing bowl.

  4. 4

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chili with cheese, crema, remaining green portions of green onions, and bacon. Bon appétit!
