Turkey Burritos of Delishisness

Submitted by: PAIDIA

Introduction

These tasty burritos are fast enough to make after even the busiest of days...and are great with a green salad on the side...I find they really are best with the smoky, yet robust, flavor of Ancho chili powder, but any will do fine...just adjust the amount as necessary to counteract a potential SU-heat overdose...

Ingredients

    1 T Peanut Oil
    2 Medium Onions, minced
    Kosher salt to taste (roughly 1.5 tsp...add part to raw onion...season more at the end if necessary)
    2 T Ancho (or other) Chili powder
    24 Oz cream cheese - softened at room temp
    1 cup diced green chilies (roasted, canned kind)
    3 pounds lean ground turkey
    20 8 inch flour tortillas

Directions

Makes 20 8-inch burritos
*open cream cheese and place in large mixing bowl - set aside
*saute the onions in the peanut oil along with kosher salt and chili powder
*add green chilies
* when the onions have started to turn translucent, add the ground turkey and "crumble" it up to cook until there are no overly large chunks and the meat is thoroughly done... no pink.
*if there is more than a few tablespoons of excess liquid in the pan, either turn the heat up for a minute or two and boil it off (preferred) or.. drain it off...
*add hot turkey mix to the cream cheese and, using a potato masher or large spoon mix the two together until homogeneous. Electric mixing is not advised as it will turn to paste...
*Once the mix is well blended - place a few tablespoons of mixture onto a tortilla and roll burrito style...
*for extra credit you may lightly brown the burritos in a non-stick pan over medium heat...
*serve with green salad or fresh fruit...
*will hold three days in the fridge.....not that it will last that long...
