I don't know if it is the 2 cans of hot tomato sauce or the warmed tortillas, but this recipe was just phenomenal! There are not even seasonings used here, but the burritos just have this incredibly full flavor - there is nothing missing! These burritos are so incredibly easy, and this is one recipe I will keep on hand to use regularly. The burritos are quite healthy, and the recipe uses nothing containing a lot of fat. Thanks to Gary for providing a fantastic recipe! Two hints: 1) To keep this recipe healthy when you make it, be sure to use skinless ground turkey, otherwise the skin is ground into the turkey and it contains extra fat; 2) If you are like me and are terrible at folding burritos, spread a little refried beans on the ends you are trying to fold - they act like a sticky paste to kee the burritos nicely folded.

These were ok. I left out the beans & added burrito seasoning cumin and chili powder. Toppings were cilantro and sliced avocado. Nothing out of this world but a healthy simple dinner to make on a busy weeknight. Although I love the hot tomato sauce & plan on implementing that into many more dishes! Read More

I expected these to be decent, but they were actually wonderful. My husband was also pleasantly surprised and asked me to make them again soon. I used Rotel tomatoes instead of the hot tomato sauce, only because I couldn't find it. I also wrapped the burritos, minus the sour cream, and placed them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 7-10 minutes. The tortillas got nice and crunchy and the cheese was melted into the meat and beans. I then topped them with the sour cream and served. We will definitely be making these again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

WOW!! This recipe was really great!! My husband and I have been trying to eat healthy, and we love mexican style food so I thought this would be a great recipe to try. We used the 99% fat free ground turkey. Like alot of the other reviewers we could not find hot tomato sauce, so we replaced the two cans of hot tomato sauce with the following: (1) 8 oz. can of tomato sauce (1) 10oz. can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, 1/3 cup of medium salsa, 1 tablespoon of chili powder, 1/2 tablespoon of ground cumin, and 1/2 tablespoon of onion powder. The flavor was delicious! We will be making this recipe over and over again! Read More

Excellent but I added jalopenas to the mix. I bought fresh Jalopenas and fried them in olive oil then draind the oil and mixed the peppers in with the meat. The longer you fry the peppers the less heat the remains. Also if you dont want them real hot take out the membranes and seeds and chose peppers without the skin beginning to crack. Read More

These burrito's were yummy! My husband thought they tasted as though from a restaurant. I found the hot tomato sauce but chose not to use it. I wanted to have more control over my spices. For those of you who don't know where to find the hot tomato sauce try the mexican foods aisle of your grocery store. I followed the advice of others adding tomato sauce diced tomatoes with chiles chili powder onion powder and ground cumin. I also added the refried beans directly to the meat mixture saving a step. This made so much I was able to freeze about half. Looking forward to eating it too! Read More

Needs some serious spicing up but other than that it is a great start. And a great healthy way to use ground turkey. Read More

I thought this recipe was very good. I followed the suggestions of someone else and substituted the following: 1- 8 oz. can of tomato sauce 1/3 cup salsa and 1 can of hot diced tomatoes with green chilis for the 2 cans of hot tomato sauce (b/c I couldn't find any at the market). I also added the following seasonings: 1 TBS of cumin chili powder and onion powder. I also used whole wheat tortillas. I will make this recipe again! I love the low fat version by using turkey instead of beef. Read More
