A note about serious food allergies

We're about thinking outside the box at the Home Chef, and especially outside the appetizer box. Why confine great flavors to the beginning of a meal, we say to ourselves, as we cackle like the mad scientists, turning Buffalo wings into a smoothie. This doesn't take it quite that far; in fact, we think putting jalapeño, cheese, and ranch flavors on a flatbread is quite natural. Natural and yummy… appetizers continue to be fantastic inspiration.

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 diced chicken breasts, follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Step 3, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using steak strips pat dry, and coarsely chop. Follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Step 3, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Step 3, breaking up beef until no pink remains and beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Step 3, breaking up burger into smaller pieces until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Par-Bake the Flatbreads

    Place flatbreads directly on rack in hot oven and toast until edges are brown and crispy, 5-7 minutes.

    While flatbreads par-bake, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

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

    Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into 1/4" 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 softened cream cheese, sour cream, and seasoning blend. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Topping

    Pat chicken dry. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken, white portions of green onions, and poblano to hot pan. Stir occasionally until chicken is lightly browned and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

    Stir in corn until heated through, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Assemble the Flatbreads

    Place flatbreads on prepared baking sheet.

    Top evenly with cream cheese mixture, then topping and shredded cheese.

  5. 5

    Bake Flatbreads and Finish Dish

    Bake in hot oven until cheese has melted and flatbread is golden brown, 2-3 minutes.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with green portions of green onions and crispy jalapeños. Bon appétit!
