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

  • If using ground beef or ground pork follow same instructions as ground turkey in Steps 1 and 2, breaking up until meat browns, 2-3 minutes, then cooking until meat reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Steps 1 and 2, breaking up until burger browns, 2-3 minutes, then cooking until heated through, 2-3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Ground Turkey

    Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add ground turkey, fajita seasoning, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pot. Stir occasionally, breaking up meat until browned, 3-4 minutes.

    Turkey will finish cooking in a later step.

  2. 2

    Start the Chili

    Add peppers and corn to hot pot. Stir often until slightly softened, 3-4 minutes.

    Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains.

    Add 1 cup water and chicken base. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir often until broth is thickened and smooth and ground turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 1-2 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Chili

    Drain black beans.

    Add half the black beans (remaining are yours to use as you please!) and half the sour cream (reserve remaining for garnish) to hot pot. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until combined, 1-2 minutes.

    For a thinner chili, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4
