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 diced chicken breasts, pat dry. Follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 4, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 4, breaking up meat until no pink remains and turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 4, breaking up until burger is heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Toast the Tortillas

    Tip: Tostadas are a delicious, but messy treat. For this recipe, they can easily be converted to tacos. Simply warm tortillas in oven for 1-2 minutes after completing steps.

    Poke tortillas with a fork all over, 10 times for each tortilla. Place tortillas on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil. Massage oil into tortillas.

    Toast in hot oven until browned and crispy, 5-7 minutes.

    While tortillas toast, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into 1/4" dice.

    Drain pineapple and halve pieces.

    Trim and mince white portions of green onions. Thinly slice green portions of green onions on an angle. Keep white and green portions separate.

  3. 3

    Sear the Pineapple

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add pineapple to hot pan and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer pineapple to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Topping

    Return pan used to sear pineapple to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add red bell peppers to hot pan and stir occasionally until starting to soften, 2-3 minutes.

    Add ground pork, BBQ spice rub (use less if spice-averse), and 1/4 tsp. salt. Stir often, breaking up meat, until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-5 minutes.

    Stir in BBQ sauce until sauce coats pork, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While pork cooks, continue recipe.

  5. 5

    Make Ginger-Garlic Crema and Finish Dish

    In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, Asian garlic, ginger & chile seasoning (to taste), white portions of green onions, and a pinch of salt.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, spreading ginger-garlic crema on tostadas. Add topping and garnish with pineapple and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
