What’s in these Cowboy Turkey Baked Burritos? 

I am obsessed with this recipe. Not only does it have minimal ingredients, but it’s a breeze to make especially during a busy weeknight. You will need the following:

Ground turkey

Chili beans

Shredded Cheese



Chili Powder


Garlic Powder 

Tips for Making these Cowboy Turkey Baked Burritos:

1) Ground turkey. If you want to replace the turkey with ground beef, pork, or chicken go for it! All would be delicious options.

2) Beans. I like to use canned chili beans because they have a bit more flavor. However, if you have a can of black or pinto beans in the pantry please use that instead! 

3) Spice mix. This is my favorite Mexican spice blend. I use it all the time! However, if you need to purchase store-bought seasoning that works too!

Can I make these vegetarian? 

Yes! If you want to make these more veggie friendly I would replace the protein with extra beans, onions, and green peppers! The seasoning would stay the same.

Can I freeze these burritos? 

You bet! Once you are done assembling the burritos go ahead and place them in a freezer safe container. They will last up to a month in the freezer. When you are ready to cook the burritos make sure they are completely thawed before placing them in the oven.
