Serve these delicious turkey burritos with a little more cheese, chopped cilantro, and salsa, along with sour cream or guacamole. I used refried black beans in this recipe, but regular refried beans can be used.

The burritos freeze well, too. Make a double batch and wrap them in foil. Freeze them, put them in zip-close freezer bags, and reheat them in the oven or microwave.

What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds turkey (ground, breast)
  • 1 cup onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
  • 1 can/15 ounces refried beans
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 cans/4 ounces each chile peppers (chopped, mild, green)
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons jalapeno peppers (finely chopped, optional)
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin (ground)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano (dried, leaf)
  • 10 to 12 (8-inch) tortillas (flour)
  • 1 1/2 cups cheese (shredded, Mexican blend)

How to Make It

  1. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Brown the turkey with the onions until turkey is no longer pink. Add garlic and stir in the beans, salsa, chile peppers and jalapenos, and chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Cover and simmer, stirring frequently, for about 20 minutes.
  2. Heat tortillas according to package directions. Arrange 2 to 3 tablespoons of cheese in the center of a tortilla. Top with about 1/2 cup of the cooked turkey mixture. Roll the tortilla up, tucking ends in so the meat is encased. Repeat with the remaining burritos.
  1. Serve the burritos warm topped with salsa and more cheese or other toppings, as desired.
  2. Wrap leftover burritos in foil, put them in a food storage bag, and freeze. Reheating is easy either in the oven (left in foil) or in the microwave.
