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) |

  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare 2 baking sheets with foil. Rinse and pat dry all produce and herbs. Stem and roughly chop the cilantro. Remove the husk from the ear of corn. Working on a cutting board, carefully cut the kernels away from the cob and set aside. Chop the jalapeño into a small dice. If you're spice-sensitive, wear rubber gloves to remove seeds from the pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place the chicken breasts on the baking sheet. Drizzle the chicken with one 1 tsp. of olive oil and season with the enchilada seasoning blend. Bake the chicken in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. The internal temperature should read 165 degrees (if using a meat thermometer). When the chicken is cooked, cool and slice into thin ¼" strips.

  3. 3

    Roll the Enchiladas

    Wrap tortillas in slightly moist paper towels and warm in a microwave for about 20 seconds. Layer chicken, cheese (reserving a small amount to sprinkle on top), green chili sauce, jalapeño (to taste), and corn in the middle of the tortilla. Repeat until 6 tortillas are filled. Roll the tortillas and place on a baking sheet, lightly coated with cooking spray, seams facing down. Place each enchilada against the next to ensure the final product stays together and they cook evenly.

  4. 4

    Bake the Enchiladas

    Pour enchilada sauce over enchiladas so all are sauced. Sprinkle with reserved cheese. Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until bubbling and the cheese has melted.

  5. 5

    Plate the Dish

    Place three enchiladas in the middle of a plate. Garnish with cilantro, remaining jalapeño (if you like it hot), and a dollop of cool sour cream. Repeat for other serving.
