Skinny Baked Burritos

So, these are awesome. I mean, LOOK AT THAT! Now, you may be saying to yourself, how is that pocket of cheesy meaty goodness covered in sauce a skinny recipe? Well, the burrito above is not. As always, something went wrong...but in this case, I'd say my accident was a win win. 

I found the recipe on Skinny Mom and in my attempts to duplicate it, I screwed up. I bought the wrong size tortillas.  The recipe is supposed to make 8 burritos. My version only makes 4 burritos. So our serving size was essentially double the skinny recipe. However, I am not sorry because these were delicious and AWESOME and I will gladly take on the extra calories to eat this delicious pocket...and I can't promise that when I make these again, I won't make the same "mistake."  I modified the original recipe a bit just by adding black beans & onions to the inside of the burrito. 

Skinny Baked Burritos
Serves: 8 (or 4 depending on tortilla size)
Cook time according to Skinny Mom: 25 mins (she crazy)
Cook time according to Rachel? 1 hour (yes 1 hour)
How difficult was this for Rachel? Easy!

8 medium tortillas (or 4 large)
1 lb ground turkey
1 packet low sodium taco seasoning
1/2 cup light sour cream
5 oz taco sauce (little over half the jar)
1/2 cup reduced fat 4 cheese Mexican shredded cheese
1 cup black beans
1 cup chopped onion
1 can fat free cream of mushroom soup (sounds weird & not pictured...but trust me)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet, brown the meat. Once brown, remove from heat & drain excess liquid.

Return to low heat & add in taco seasoning & onion. Mix thoroughly & let simmer for 5 mins.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together taco sauce, sour cream & soup. 

Once meat is ready, spread out 1/8 (or 1/4 depending on tortilla size) of the meat & onion mix on the tortilla. Add 1 tbsp (or more if desired) of black beans. 

You can add a little cheese into each if you desire. I didn't and just added it all on top.

Repeat for all tortillas.

Once burritos are ready, place 1/3 of sauce mix in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.

Add the burritos in seam down. Mine did spill a little, but no big deal.

Pour the rest of the sauce mix over the top of the burritos & spread evenly.

Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake for 25 mins until cheese is completely melted.
