We had fresh organic turkey, beans and tomatillos on hand! Found this recipe and hoped for the best. I made the tomatillo sauce fresh (Rick Bayless recipe on this site) and turned the burritos into enchiladas. I used lower fat cheese and extra tomatillo sauce. I also added some taco seasoning. It was good but probably not something we'll have again...
