RECIPE: Burrito Bake (a healthy choice)

Buenos Noches! This simple mexican burrito bake is made with seasoned ground turkey, providing a relatively healthy alternative to other slow cooker recipes. While it is lower in calories and fat contact, it is NOT lacking in flavor.

1 lb. ground turkey breast
1 tbs. chili powder
1 (14 oz.) can dices tomatoes
1.5 cup of salsa
6 flour tortillas
1/2 cup quick cooking brown rice (I used Success Rice)
1 zucchini, chopped
1 (30oz.) can of dark red kidney beans
1.5 cups of low-fat cheddar cheese

  • brown turkey in a skillet until no pink remains
  • mix in chili powder and remove from heat
  • spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (Pam)
  • combine tomatoes and salsa in bowl
  • spread 1/2 cup of tomato mixture in bottom of slow cooker
  • place two tortillas to cover bottom of cooker (you may need to tear them)
  • layer half of turkey mixture, half of brown rice, half of beans, and half of zucchini
  • spoon in one cup of tomato mixture
  • add 1/2 cup of cheese
  • repeat with two more tortillas, remaining turkey, beans, rice. zucchini, 1 cup of tomatoes, and 1/2 cup of cheese
  • top with remaining 2 tortillas and spread with remaining tomato mixture
  • cook on LOW for 6 hours (do NOT try this on high, it may burn)
  • with 10 minutes lake, sprinkle with remaining cheese

Serve with remaining salsa mixture, shredded lettuce, and sour cream.
