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 whole chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as diced chicken

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 2, and 3, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Sear the Chicken

    Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Pat chicken dry, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add chicken to hot pot and stir occasionally until browned on two sides, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

  2. 2

    Start the Chili

    Drain black beans. Return pot used to sear chicken to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add peppers, corn, and black beans to hot pot. Stir often until slightly softened, 3-4 minutes. Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains. Add 1¼ cups water, chicken broth concentrate, seasoning blend, and ¼ tsp. salt. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir often until broth is thickened and smooth, 2-3 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Chili

    While broth simmers, coarsely chop chicken. Add chicken and half the sour cream (reserve remaining for garnish) to hot 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, 2-3 minutes. For a thinner consistency, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  4. 4

    Finish the Dish
