Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. sliced pork, follow same instructions as 10 oz. sliced pork, working in batches, if necessary.

  • If using 20 oz. steak strips, follow same instructions as sliced pork in Step 1, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Work in batches if necessary.

  • If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry, and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and follow same instructions as sliced pork in Step 1, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using shrimp, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as sliced pork in Step 1, cooking until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pork Mixture

    Separate sliced pork into a single layer and pat dry. Coarsely chop. Season all over with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into 1/2" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add sliced pork and poblano to hot pan. Stir occasionally until poblano has browned, no pink remains on pork, and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

    Stir in pesto (to taste). Remove from burner. Rest, 3 minutes.

    While pork cooks, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Crema

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Stem cilantro, reserving leaves whole.

    In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, cilantro, 2 tsp. water, and 1/4 tsp salt. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Heat the Rice

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

    Add white portions of green onions and rice to hot pan. Stir occasionally until rice is warmed through, 3-5 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing rice next to pork mixture and garnishing with cilantro crema, cheese, and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
