What’s the first thing you think of when you think of Mexican Food. Yep Tacos. What else? Chips & Salsa. And? Yep, delicious burrito. There’s just something about a large warm flour tortilla filled with meat and cheese and beans. I’ve never hidden the fact that I LOVE Mexican Food. I could eat it every day!
This easy to make Turkey Tomatillo and Bean Burrito recipe will not disappoint. Filled with a delicious Tomatillo flavored Turkey filling. Pinto beans and Mexican Cheese bring this Burrito to the next level. I like my Mexican Food with a little kick to it so I made sure to use the “hot” Tomatillo Salsa. But you can use a mild or medium Tomatillo salsa to suit your taste buds.
So the pie isn’t perfect? Cut it into wedges. Stay in control, and never panic.
I typically prefer a “dry” Burrito (aka. no sauce on it) but this time around, I just have it “wet” which means coated with more Tomatillo Salsa and shredded cheese then broiled in the oven. You can skip this step if you want a dry Burrito. And just like most of my recipes, you can substitute for your favorite cheese or salsa. You can even use different beans but be careful, not all types of beans might work with this recipe.
