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 Impossible burger, follow same instructions as sliced pork in Step 1, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using diced chicken, follow same instructions as sliced pork in Step 1, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pork Mixture

    Separate sliced pork into a single layer and pat dry. 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 and 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.

    While pork cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Crema

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

    Halve lime and juice.

    Mince cilantro (no need to stem).

    In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, 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, topping rice with pork mixture and garnishing with cilantro-lime crema, cheese, and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
