Spicy Turkey Burritos (Make Ahead)
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • ½ tsp pepper, divided
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped veggies (like red bell pepper, butternut squash, kale)
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp each dried oregano and chili powder
  • 6 large burrito-size soft tortillas
  • Avocado, sour cream, cilantro and lime for topping
  1. 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. Saute until fragrant and softened -- about 10 minutes -- stirring frequently. Turn off the heat and pour the veggies into a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
