Serves 6

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, halved and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chile powder
  • 1 15-ounce c diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 4 cups shredded cooked turkey or chicken
  • 1 15-ounce c pinto beans, rinsed
  • 6 10-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas or wraps, warmed (see Tip)
  • 3/4 cup grated Monterey or pepper Jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin and chile powder and cook for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and lime juice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the onions are very soft, 16 to 20 minutes. Stir in turkey (or chicken) and beans and continue cooking until the mixture is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes more. Divide the turkey-bean mixture among tortillas (or wraps). Top each with cheese and cabbage, roll into burritos and serve.
