Turkey Burritos

1 pound extra lean ground turkey breast

16 oz fat-free canned refried beans

8 oz salsa

1 cup shredded fat free cheddar cheese

4 1/2 oz canned green chili peppers, mild, drained and diced

1 tsp chili powder

3 TBSP green onions/scallions, thinly sliced

8 low carb whole wheat tortilla

extra salsa for garnish


Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly spray a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Add turkey to non-stick skillet and cook over medium-high heat until lightly browned – about five minutes. Drain any excess liquid from pan, add beans, 8 ounces of salsa, chili peppers, chili powder and scallions. Cook until heated through, about three minutes; stir in cheese. Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil; warm in oven for 10 minutes. Assemble burritos by spooning about 1/2 cup of turkey mixture onto each tortilla; fold in sides and roll up. Place burritos in prepared baking dish. Bake uncovered until tortillas are crisp and brown, about 20 minutes. Serve each topped with additional salsa.

1 burrito (2 oz meat, 2 oz beans, 1 oz cheese) = 1carb, 4 very lean protein
