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 whole chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Step 2, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using shrimp, follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Steps 1 and 2, cooking until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  • If using steak strips or sliced pork, separate into a single layer, pat dry, and coarsely chop, if desired. Follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Step 2, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and protein reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel apple, quarter, and remove core. Cut into 1/2" dice.

    Peel and halve onion. Slice thinly.

    Pat chicken thighs dry. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

  2. 2

    Cook the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add chicken, onion, diced peppers, and 1/4 tsp. salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until chicken is lightly browned and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

    Stir in BBQ sauce, red pepper flakes (to taste), and a pinch of salt until combined. Remove from burner.

    While filling cooks, make slaw.

  3. 3

    Make the Slaw

    Combine apple, slaw mix, dressing, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Heat Tortillas and Finish Dish

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling tortillas with filling and topping with slaw and crispy onions. Bon appétit!
