Turkey, Bean and Cheese Burritos

(This is a recipe from my mom. I believe it is a weight watchers recipe,
but I don't have the WW info...it is a must try!)

Turkey, Bean and Cheese Burritos

10 oz ground turkey
16 oz (can) refried beans
1 C salsa (I use Pace)
4 oz can chopped green chilis
1 tsp. chili powder
3 T scallions
1 C shredded jack cheese (I use the jack/cheddar combo)

Brown ground turkey. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Divide mixture between 8 tortilla shells. (I use the medium size ones and they are pretty full) Bake at 350* for about 20-25 minutes. I cover mine with tin foil to keep the tortillas soft. My mom cooks them uncovered and the tortillas get a little crisp...so whatever your preference is. They can be served plain...or you can top them with low fat sour cream or more salsa or guacamole. These are also great reheated from the fridge or freezer.

Calorie Total: 1/8th of mixture is 175 calories.
The tortillas I use have 150 calories...which is the norm for most tortillas. You can find lower calorie tortillas as well.

We LOVE these burritos at our house. They are full of flavor and one fills me up...especially if you serve them with a green salad or roasted corn and red onions.
