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
  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. When ingredient appears in recipe, remove from packaging. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Combine diced peppers, corn, 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in provided tray. Push to one side and top with cream cheese. Cream cheese will melt as meal bakes.

  2. 2

    Bake the Meal

    Pat chicken thighs dry. Combine chicken thighs and taco seasoning in empty side of tray. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor. Bake uncovered in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 23-25 minutes. If using diced chicken breasts, follow same instructions. If using shrimp, follow same instructions and bake uncovered until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 16-20 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Dish

    While chicken bakes, combine slaw mix and chipotle ranch dressing (to taste) in a mixing bowl. Carefully remove tray from oven. Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds. Stir chicken and vegetables until completely combined. Fill tortillas with chicken and vegetables and top with slaw, cheese, and crispy red peppers. Bon appétit!
