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
  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Quarter lime. Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into ¼" dice. Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into ½" 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. Pat diced chicken dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Sear the Chicken

    Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pot and stir occasionally until browned on two sides, 4-6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Start the Chowder

    Return pot used to sear chicken to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add onion and poblano (use less if spice-averse) to hot pot. Stir often until vegetables are slightly softened, 3-5 minutes. Stir in corn and seasoning rub until combined.

  4. 4

    Finish the Chowder

    Add chicken and any accumulated juices, ½ cup water, cream, and chicken base to pot. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until slightly thickened and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes. For a thinner consistency, stir in additional water 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner. Season with a pinch of pepper.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing chowder with cheese and tortilla strips. Squeeze lime wedges over to taste. Bon appétit!
