Easy Turkey Burrito Skillet

0 from 0 votes

A low-carb version of a Southwestern favorite!

Skip the high-calorie Mexican takeout and cook yourself an easy turkey burrito skillet instead. It has the Mexican flavors you love, including salsa, chili powder, and cumin. Since we’ve used whole-wheat tortillas and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, it’s also healthier than buying a burrito. Ground turkey is a fantastic source of lean protein, as are black beans and Greek yogurt. You’ll also get your fiber in, thanks to the black beans and whole-wheat tortillas. The best part, though, is that the whole recipe takes less than 15 minutes to put together. Curb those burrito cravings healthily AND quickly!

  1. I have a question about a previous resapie. It was a cassarole with eggs spinach, tomato and feta cheese. It also had a hash brown potato crust. I made it exactly as printed,but added 3/4 cup precooked sauage. My eggs would not get firm. It had to stay in oven almost 1 hour. What happened?
    Please advise.
