Spicy Turkey Burritos (Make Ahead)
Health Highlights


2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1 medium Red onion
1 cup chopped Red bell pepper
1/2 cup Kale (chopped)
1/2 cup Butternut squash (chopped)
454 gm Ground turkey, lean
1 tbsp Cumin
1 tsp Oregano, ground
6 large tortilla(s) Wheat flour tortilla


PREP THE VEGGIES: Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and veggies, ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper. Sauté until fragrant and softened – about 10 minutes – stirring frequently. Turn off the heat and pour the veggies into a large bowl. Set aside.

BROWN THE MEAT: Return the pan to medium heat and add the remaining tbsp of olive oil. Add the turkey and remaining salt and pepper to the pan. Break up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Once it's browned and cooked all the way through, add the spices and stir to coat. Cook for another 2 minutes and turn off the heat.

BRING IT TOGETHER: Pour the meat into your bowl with the veggies. Stir to combine and, if making ahead to freeze, allow to cool. Spread your tortillas out on a clean surface, assembly-line style. Divide the filling evenly on top of each tortilla. Wrap up your burritos, and then wrap each in plastic wrap or freezer paper. Place in a plastic bag and lay flat in the freezer for up to a month.

REHEAT & EAT: Pull a burrito from the freezer and unwrap onto a microwave safe place. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, turning over halfway through. Top with your desired toppings!
