This is a GREAT recipe to help you use up that leftover turkey that you don't know what to do with (You can also try it with other meat like chicken if you want to). Warning - It's a little spicy! Enjoy :)
Turkey Burritos with Salsa and Cilantro
Servings: Makes 6
Cooking time: 40 minutes
The bold flavor of turkey is a natural with Mexican food. Fire-roasted salsa can be found in the refrigerated deli case at most supermarkets.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 red onions, sliced
- 2 bell peppers (preferably 1 red and 1 yellow), seeded, sliced
- 4 cups diced leftover cooked turkey meat
- 3/4 cup purchased fresh fire-roasted salsa
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 8-ounce package grated Mexican 4-cheese blend (about 2 cups)
- 3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 6 burrito-size flour tortillas
Preheat oven to 300°F. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and bell peppers; sauté until tender and golden, about 15 minutes. Add turkey, salsa, and cumin; stir until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in cheese and cilantro; season generously with salt and pepper. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.
Working with 1 tortilla at a time, heat tortilla directly over medium-high gas flame (or in dry skillet over medium-high heat) until warm, softened, and browned in spots, about 30 seconds per side. Place tortilla on work surface. Spoon 1 cup warm turkey mixture along center of tortilla; fold sides in over filling, then roll up tortilla to enclose filling. Place burrito seam side down on baking sheet, and place in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
