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 16 oz. pulled pork, follow same instructions.

  • If using ground turkey, skip microwaving step and heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Season turkey with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook turkey, breaking up with a spoon, until no pink remains and turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes. Add BBQ sauce to pan with turkey.

  • If using ground beef, skip microwaving step and heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Season beef with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook beef, breaking up with a spoon, until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Add BBQ sauce to pan with beef.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem poblano pepper, seed, quarter lengthwise, and slice into 1/2” wide strips. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Coarsely chop pulled pork. Excess pork fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

  2. 2

    Heat the Pork

    Place pork in a microwave-safe bowl and top with BBQ sauce. Microwave until hot, 3-4 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Make the Creamed Corn Penne

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add corn and poblano to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.

    Add cream cheese, pasta, seasoning blend, sour cream, and 1 Tbsp. water. Stir until cream cheese is melted and mixture has combined, 1-2 minutes.

    If too thick, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Remove from burner and stir in cheddar-jack cheese (reserve a pinch for garnish) until melted, 1-2 minutes.
