Southwestern Turkey & Bean Burger Wraps

Love, love, LOVE this recipe! It is the perfect weeknight dinner- healthy, delicious, and fast. As someone who is not normally a fan of leftovers, I attest that these leftovers were delicious. Normally, I give R any leftovers- this time, nary a leftover went home with him! This recipe was so delicious that I intend to make it this week . . . just for me! I liked this recipe so much that I am actually looking forward to four days of eating the same dish. Surprising!

Tip: This recipe goes perfectly with Southwest Roasted Asparagus and Corn!

  • 12 ounces 99% fat-free turkey
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pickled jalapenos
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 cup prepared salsa (I used Newman's Own medium pineapple salsa)
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 whole-wheat tortillas, warmed
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges
  1. Position oven rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.
  2. Gently combine ground turkey, beans, cilantro and jalapenos in a medium bowl (do not overmix). Shape into four 5-by-2-inch oblong patties and place on the prepared pan.
  3. Broil the patties until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 165°F, 12 to 14 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, mash together avocado, salsa and garlic powder in a small bowl.
  5. Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Spread each with the guacamole, then sprinkle with lettuce and cheese. Top each with a burger and roll into a wrap. Serve immediately, with lime wedges.
