Turkey Burritos

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by jmelyn

This is from Cooking Light, with some minor modifications. Easy recipe for a busy weeknight, and uses ingredients I usually have on hand. Hope you enjoy! Edited to add: I make this probably once a week, and just wanted to note that I use A LOT more salsa than the recipe calls for--probably about a half cup or more. :)

Awesome blend of ingredients and a great low fat burrito for shedding winter pounds, not to mention a great OAMC stand-by! Thanks for sharing!

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat.

  3. Add ground turkey breast and cook mixture for about 10 minutes, or until the turkey is browned, stirring to crumble.
