A note about serious food allergies

Why is Hatch chile called “hatch?” The answer is fairly simple: the Hatch chile is grown in the Hatch valley of New Mexico. (This is also why Hatch, New Mexico is known as the “Chile Capitol of the World.”) The soil around Hatch contributes to the flavor of the peppers grown in them, which makes sense. What also makes sense is adding that flavor to the filling of crunchy, yummy flautas, along with poblano, chile and cumin seasoning, and ground beef. The journey of the hatch from New Mexico to your plate is a delicious one.

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 20 oz. ground pork, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground pork, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 2, breaking up turkey until no pink remains and turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes.

  • If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 2, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Crema

    Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Mince cilantro (no need to stem).

    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.

    In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, half the cilantro (reserve remaining for garnish), and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Start the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add ground pork to hot, dry pan and stir occasionally, 2 minutes.

    Add poblano, seasoning rub, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir occasionally until peppers are softened, no pink remains on pork, and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 6-8 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Filling

    Stir 2 Tbsp. water, Hatch green chiles, and softened cream cheese into hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until combined and creamy, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Assemble the Flautas

    Place tortillas on a clean work surface.

    Divide filling evenly among tortillas, placing on center of each tortilla. Tuck one tortilla end under filling and roll tightly, placing seam side down.

    Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Toast Flautas and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook filling to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Working in batches if necessary, place flautas in hot pan, seam-side down. Cook until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes.

    Replenish oil if necessary. Gently roll to opposite side and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with crema, cheese, and remaining cilantro. Squeeze lime wedges over to taste. Bon appétit!
