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? 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
mixed greens
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.

  1. That is so funny it is from the guy from "Saved by the Bell." Kelly is on "White Collar", we like to watch that show. And Zach was just on "Rizzoli and Isles", he was the murderer. Where is Screech these days???
