Turkey & Black Bean Burritos
This recipe comes to us from Mario Lopez aka Saved By the Bells very own A.C. Slater! Do you remember the episode when his ex-girlfriend comes by and everyone learns that the A.C. stands for Albert Clifford? Anyways...it was the "Celeb Dish" in September's issue of Good Housekeeping.
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 lb ground turkey breast (I used a little over a pound)
1 c canned black beans, rinsed and drained (I used the whole can)
1 c finely chopped red pepper (I used a little less)
1/2 c finely chopped red onion (I used yellow onion)
1/4 c BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays)
4 tsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
salt (I used garlic salt)
whole wheat flour tortillas
low fat shredded cheddar cheese
the recipe didn't call for sour cream or guacamole, but either would be a delicious addition
Heat oil in skillet until hot. Add turkey and cook 7 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally and breaking up meat.
Add beans, pepper, onion, BBQ sauce, lime juice, chili powder, cumin and salt; cook mixture 5 to 7 minutes or until turkey is cooked through.
Serve on tortilla with greens and cheese.
