Delicious, Filling Burritos

Delicious, Filling Burritos
I forgot this was a short week, so we're only on day three of our Movie Mania Menu and it's already Thursday!  Not to worry though, we've got enough GREAT ideas pouring in to change the whole format of this blog!  What great fun this is!

Today I'm paying tribute to my all-time, favorite movie: ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY.  First of all, if Will Farrell doesn't make you laugh, we may need to reconsider our friendship.  Second of all, this movie is filmed in San Diego!  Third of all, it skyrocketed the comedic careers of Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and most of all Steve Carell!  Let's face it, this movie ROCKS !!!!

There are MANY scenes from this movie that I'd love to cook for, and you WILL see this movie again on Movie Mania, but today my first contribution is the "Burrito" scene with Jack Black.  Filmed on the famous and beautiful Coronado Bridge, Ron Burgundy gives us all a lesson in what can happen when littering on the San Diego streets.

I created a simple, but "delicious" and "filling" burrito for you all today.  This isn't anything fancy, but Baby Bodhi sure did like it, so it gets the seal of approval!  Enjoy!

Prep Time: 15 minutes / Cook Time: 30 minutes / Servings: 4 burritos

Delicious, Filling Burritos
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup white rice, cooked
  • 1 cup canned black beans
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup pico de gallo or salsa fresca
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 tsp. chipotle chile powder
  • salt and pepper

  1. Heat a large skillet on medium heat.  Add ground turkey, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and ground cumin.  Mix seasoning into meat while cooking.  Season with salt and pepper to taste and continue to cook on medium heat for 7-10 minutes until turkey is brown and cooked through.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine cooked rice and canned beans.  Stir in lime juice and chipotle powder.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Stir until combined and cook on low heat for 5-10 minutes, just until rice and beans are warmed.
  3. Heat tortillas in microwave for 10-15 seconds.  Place the burritos on a flat surface.  Place 1/4 cup shredded cheese in the center of each tortilla.  Add a large spoonful of ground turkey, rice & beans, and salsa on top of the cheese.  Tuck the ends of the burrito in and roll edges under.  Serve immediately.
