You don’t often think of using ground turkey when making burritos, but surprisingly it’s very tasty and makes the perfect alternative to ground beef. This low-fat ground turkey recipe is super simple to make and the whole family will absolutely love it. The best part is the ground turkey comes pre-seasoned so you’ll never have to worry about measuring or buying extra seasonings. Using Jennie-O Pre-Seasoned Lean Taco-Seasoned Ground Turkey not only saves you time in the kitchen but it’s also perfect for those who are trying to watch their waistline, like myself. So, how about stepping out of your comfort zone and try adding a little turkey to your Mexican favorites. You’ll be glad you did! We’d also like to thank Jennie-O for providing us with the ground turkey for our meal. They totally rock, right?
