Turkey and Bean Burritos

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Cactus Arm

This is one of my favorite recipes. It comes from Prevention's "The Healthy Cook" Cookbook. By the taste you would never know this recipe is a "good for you" recipe. Makes a chili like burrito filling with melted cheese, wrapped by a crunchy on the edges flour tortilla. This recipe makes some leftovers. This is a good take along lunch too.

This is also great using ground chicken. I made this without the salt and tomato sauce and added about 1 tb. of cumin. I also used whole wheat tortillas.
