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

    Bake the Topping

    Turn oven on to 425 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.

    Drain shrimp thoroughly and pat dry.

    Drain beans.

    In provided tray, combine shrimp, poblanos (use less if spice-averse), and 1 tsp. olive oil. Spread into an even layer.

    Bake uncovered in hot oven, 15 minutes.

    Carefully remove tray from oven.

    Drain excess liquid. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil. Add fajita seasoning, beans, and enchilada sauce to tray and stir to combine.

    Bake again uncovered in hot oven until shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    While topping bakes, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Toast the Tortillas

    Poke tortillas with a fork all over, 10 times for each tortilla.

    Place tortillas directly on oven rack in a single layer and toast until lightly browned and crisp, 3-5 minutes.

    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.

  3. 3

    Make Queso and Assemble Tostadas

    Stem and tear cilantro leaves.

    In a microwave-safe bowl, combine shredded cheese, cream cheese, green chiles (to taste), and 1 Tbsp. water. Microwave uncovered, 30 seconds.

    Carefully remove from microwave. Stir to combine. If too thick, add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    To serve, top tortillas with shrimp mixture, queso, and cilantro. Bon appétit!
