Turkey Burritos

Fork Facts:

Burritos are traditionally served on a flour tortilla. In our recipe we use a corn tortilla for a lighter gluten-free
option. The word burrito means “little donkey”. The name burrito, when referring to the dish, derives from the
appearance of bedrolls and packs like the ones donkeys carried.

SERVES: 6 portions
