Recipe of the Week #2!

Hey again everyone! It is time again for another Recipe of the Week! This recipe is one of my absolute favorites. I have made this several times and also passed the recipe on to my mother who also enjoys it a lot and makes it regularly. Once again I will post the recipe as it came and then I will post any changes I made to the recipe.

The original recipe comes with a fruit salsa, I've never made that part of it, but feel free to give it a go!

I hope you enjoy, please leave comments for any types of food you would like to see next time!

  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 medium mango, peeled and chopped
  • 2 medium kiwifruit, peeled and chopped
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1/2 cup burgundy wine or reduced-sodium beef broth

  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 10 whole wheat tortilla (8 inches), warmed

  • For salsa, combine the first seven ingredients. Chill until serving.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, cook the turkey, garlic, turmeric and cumin in oil over medium heat until turkey is no longer pink; drain. Stir in wine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes or until thickened.
  • Stir in the jarred salsa, corn and black beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Spoon about 1/2 cup turkey mixture off center on each tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up. Serve with salsa. Yield: 10 servings.

The only difference that I made in this recipe is I didn't use the fruit salsa. I just use more regular salsa for a sauce. So yummy!
