A note about serious food allergies

This meal combines two of the best food-stuffs known to man, Mexican food and pizza. They were almost born to be paired: both are cheesy, tomato-y, and with a whole bunch of flavor. Here, we've got a bushel of fresh vegetables (green onions, poblano, tomato) dotting the flatbreads with meaty ground beef, the aforementioned cheese, and delightful hot sauce. How does one say pizza pie in Spanish?

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

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

  • If using steak strips or flank steak, pat dry, separate strips, and coarsely chop, if desired. Follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, stirring occasionally until browned and steak strips reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Core tomato and cut into 1/4" dice.

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

    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.

  2. 2

    Cook the Beef

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

    Add ground beef and fajita seasoning to hot, dry pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Transfer ground beef to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Add 2 tsp. olive oil, poblano, corn, white portions of green onions, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan.

    Stir occasionally until slightly tender, 3-5 minutes.

    Stir in 2 Tbsp. water and crushed tomatoes until combined. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, cook until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While vegetables cook, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Par-Bake the Flatbreads

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

  5. 5

    Top Flatbreads and Finish Dish

    Carefully remove flatbreads from oven and place on prepared baking sheet. Top evenly with ground beef, tomato, vegetables, and cheese.

    Bake in hot oven until cheese is melted and topping is warmed through, 2-3 minutes.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with green portions of green onions and hot sauce (to taste). Bon appétit!
