A note about serious food allergies

The acid-y deliciousness of tomatillo makes it easy to be green for this meal, enchiladas filled with classic flavors and newer delights. Beef and pepper make up the filling, but the tomatillo salsa on top makes up the magic, tart and fresh. And that last squeeze of lime on top? It's sooo easy to be green. Tip: If you notice a sticky residue on your tomatillos, don't worry! It's natural and helps ward off insects; just thoroughly rinse your produce before cooking to remove it.

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 Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, breaking up turkey until no pink remains and turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes.

  • If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Remove husks from tomatillos, if necessary. Rinse again, and cut into ½" dice. Mince cilantro, leaves and stems. Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Peel and mince shallot.

  2. 2

    Make the Filling

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add ground beef to hot, dry pan. Stir often, breaking up meat, until browned, 2-3 minutes. Stir in pepper and onion mix, demi-glace, ¼ cup water, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Then stir occasionally until liquid is completely evaporated, no pink remains on ground beef, and ground beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Remove from burner.

  3. 3

    Make and Bake the Enchiladas

    Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Divide filling equally among tortillas, placing in the center of tortilla. Roll tortillas and place in prepared casserole dish, seam side down. Wipe pan clean and reserve. Bake in hot oven until enchiladas are heated through, 8-10 minutes. While enchiladas bake, make salsa verde.

  4. 4

    Make the Salsa Verde

    Return pan used to cook filling to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add tomatillos and shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until beginning to soften, 2-3 minutes. Add ¾ cup water and ¼ tsp. salt. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir often, breaking up tomatillos, until liquid is reduced by half, 4-5 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in ½ tsp. lime juice, half the cilantro (reserve remaining for garnish), and ¼ tsp. salt until combined. Taste, and add additional lime juice, if desired.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping enchiladas with remaining cilantro, cheese, and sour cream. Squeeze lime wedges over meal to taste. Bon appétit!
