Ground Turkey Burritos
I make a triple batch of these, freeze them on a cookie
sheet then wrap in aluminum foil and store in freezer bags. These burritos are great
for lunches! Feel free to make these burritos with ground beef instead of ground turkey.
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
- 1 pound ground turkey or beef
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 large green pepper, chopped
- 2 chiles , your choice
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 can refried beans
- 1 can chiles, chopped
- 3/4 cup picante sauce or salsa
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash cayenne
- 1 cup Monterey jack cheese, shredded
- 8 flour tortillas
Brown the turkey with onion, peppers and garlic. Drain excess
fat. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer about 20 minutes,
skimming excess liquid off the top. Let cool a bit so the mixture
is a little firmer.
Warm the tortillas in the microwave or individually in a frying
pan to soften.
Put a big spoonful in the center of each tortilla, top with some
cheese, and wrap, folding the ends within.
Optional additions:black beans, corn, more chiles, rice, whatever
