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 16 oz. shrimp, follow same instructions as 8 oz. shrimp, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as shrimp in Step 3, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as shrimp in Step 3, breaking up beef until no pink remains and beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Make the Taco Shell Bowl

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave, 20 seconds.

    Poke tortillas with fork all over, 10 times for each tortilla. Coat on both sides generously with cooking spray. Alternatively, coat evenly with 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Make two loosely-packed, softball-size foil balls, each about 5-6" in diameter. Place foil balls on prepared baking sheet and lay a tortilla over each ball. Bake in hot oven, 10 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven. Remove foil ball. Bake again, open side down, until golden and crispy, 3-5 minutes.

    Remove from oven. Let cool, 5 minutes.

    While tortilla bowls bake, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely.

    Core tomato, halve lengthwise, and use spoon to scoop out insides. Cut into 1/2" dice.

    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.

    Pat shrimp dry.

  3. 3

    Cook the Shrimp and Vegetables

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

    Add poblano to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.

    Add shrimp and stir occasionally, 2 minutes.

    Stir in corn and seasoning blend. Then stir occasionally until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes.

    If pan becomes dry, add up to 3 Tbsp. water. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Start the Salad

    In a mixing bowl, mix dressing (to taste) and 1 Tbsp. water until combined.

    Add romaine and tomatoes. Toss or gently stir until romaine is coated.

  5. 5

    Finish Salad and Finish Dish

    Halve avocado and remove pit by carefully tapping pit with the blade of your knife so it sticks. Gently twist knife to release pit. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Cut into 1/4" dice.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling taco shell bowl with salad and shrimp and vegetables. Garnish with cheese and avocado. Bon appétit!
