Turkey Burritos with Fresh Fruit Salsa

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

It may still be cold and dreary outside, but I'm officially entering spring cooking mode.   This recipe from Taste of Home fits the winter-should-be-over-by-now-and-I-need-some-more-freshness-in-our-menu bill perfectly.  Make the salsa early in the day to allow the flavors a chance to combine, then when you're ready for dinner you can whip out the yummy burritos in a jiffy!  They were a cinch to make and were mild, yet tasty enough for the whole family to enjoy!

The ingredients:


1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered  (I used Roma tomatoes instead)
1 medium mango, peeled and chopped
2 kiwi fruit, peeled and chopped
3 green onions, thinly sliced
3 Tbs. finely chopped red onion
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (make sure to wash your hands thoroughly after handling the seeds)
1 Tbs. lime juice

1 lb. lean ground turkey
1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1 Tbs. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup beef broth
1 jar (16-oz.) salsa
2 cups frozen corn, thawed (or one 15-ounce can corn, drained)
1 can (15-oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
10 tortillas (8-inch), warmed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:  For salsa:  In a medium size bowl combine all ingredients and gently stir together. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until ready to serve.  Make sure to allow enough time so that the flavors can combine. 
For the burritos:  In a large nonstick skillet, cook the turkey, turmeric and cumin in oil over medium heat until turkey is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Stir in broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the jarred salsa (not the one you just made), corn and black beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat.
Spoon about 1/2 cup turkey mixture off center on each tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up. Serve with your wonderfully fresh mango salsa. Makes 10 burritos.  Enjoy!
