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 |

  1. 1

    Bake the Sausage

    Place sausages on prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 12-15 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle safely. While sausage cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Core Roma tomatoes and cut into 1/2" dice. Peel and mince shallot. Halve lime. Juice one half and cut other half into quarters. Mince cilantro leaves and stems. Stem jalapeño, halve, seed, and mince. Halve tortillas. Halve cheddar slices.

  3. 3

    Make the Pico de Gallo

    In a small mixing bowl, combine tomato, jalapeño (to taste), shallot (to taste), lime juice, and cilantro (save a pinch for garnish). Season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Stir together and set aside for flavors to marry.

  4. 4

    Cook the Taquitos

    Place three tortillas on counter (there's an extra tortilla included in case a tortilla rips). Place a cheese piece on each tortilla. Place a sausage on each tortilla and roll up tightly from pointy end to pointy end. Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and taquitos to hot pan, seam side down. Cook until browned on two sides and cheese is melted, 2-4 minutes per side. Remove from pan. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Cook the Eggs

    Return pan used for cooking taquitos to medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and liquid egg to hot pan. Cook, stirring often, until scrambled, 2-4 minutes.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Place taquitos and eggs on plate. Garnish with remaining cilantro. Serve pico de gallo and lime quarters on the side.
