Burritos Magnifico

Ingredients:
1 Pound Leanest Ground Turkey or Beef
2 Tbs Olive Oil Separated
2 Cloves Garlic Minced and separated
1 Large Onion
1/2 cup each Chopped Green and Red Bell Peppers
1 Tsp Cumin
1 Tsp Chili Powder
1/2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper (to taste)
1/2 Tsp Paprika
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 Bag Organic, Frozen Corn, Cooked and Drained
1 Can Black Beans with liquid in pan, heated. Add Seasonings to taste
1 Bag Frozen Brown Rice, Cooked
1 Cup Grated Low Fat Cheddar Cheese
1/2 Cup Fresh Cilantro
Your Favorite Salsa ( I will come up with a recipe for this soon)
Method:
Saute: 1 Clove of Garlic, 1 Tbs. Olive Oil with the Ground Meat. Drain & set aside
Saute: 1 Tbs Olive Oil, 1 Clove Garlic, Onion and Peppers and spices together until the onions are clear. Add the meat and toss together until heated through, About 5 minutes, cover and turn heat off. Heat up Tortillas in the oven or Microwave
Place heated Corn and beans into bowls or assemble burritos near the stove as not to dirty any MORE dishes.
Assembly: Tortilla-Rice-Meat Mixture-Corn-Beans-Cheese-Cilantro
Roll the short ends up and fold the long sides together and Enjoy! They key is in the timing. I get the corn & beans going first so all you have to do is turn the heat off when they are ready.

  1. When using very lean Turkey or Beef, you may need to use chicken broth or water when sauteing so it doesn't dry out. also, season the meat as well as the veggies. For the balck beans, saute a kittle garlic in the pot before adding the beans. They need seasoning too :)
