Turkey Burrito Bowls

Updated: Feb 27

I love burritos but sometimes I just don’t have shells around plus my toddler has a tough time chewing tortillas anyway. Here is an easy weekday recipe the kiddos and you will love because they can mix and match toppings to their taste.


I like to make the meat topping the night before for quicker assembly the next day.

Ingredients

Base:

Cooked rice or quinoa or a 3:1 mix of rice to quinoa (my fav)

Meat topping:

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey or chicken, thawed if frozen

  • 2 onions, sliced or shredded

  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1 carrot, shredded

  • 1 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained then fork mashed

  • ½ cup jarred salsa

  • Chopped cilantro, to taste (optional)

  • Chili and cumin powder to taste

Other topping ideas:

  • Shredded cheese

  • Chopped tomatoes

  • Sliced green onion

  • Refried beans

  • Sour cream or plain yogurt

  • Leftover chopped roasted veggies or jarred roasted red pepper

  • Avocado slices or guacamole

  • Humous

Directions

  1. Cook the rice or quinoa.

  2. Meanwhile, fry the first four meat topping ingredients in a large frying pan continually breaking up the meat.

  3. Once cooked, use a clean spatula to add in the rest of the ingredients.

  4. Cook for a few minutes until the flavours have melded together.

  5. Assemble bowls!
