How to: Make Sweet Potato and Ground Turkey Freezer Burritos

Build these southwestern ground turkey burritos on the weekends and be satisfied all week long!

Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F. Prep a sheet with cooking spray or parchment paper.

Break up the ground turkey and place it on half of the pan. Use the other half of the pan for the sweet potatoes and red onion. There will be a little fat and juices from the turkey so it’s best to keep them separate to allow the potatoes and onion to roast.

Drizzle the entire pan with olive oil. Add all your spices: salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, cumin, garlic powder, and oregano. Toss, keeping each side separate as best as you can.

Bake for 30 minutes, stirring about halfway through.

Once removed from the oven you can mix in the black beans. If eating right away, return to the oven for 5-10 minutes or until the beans have warmed. Scoop the filling onto tortillas and finish with cheese. To perfect your burrito folding skills, check out this tutorial that’s a game changer!

Eat right away or store in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to eat a frozen burrito, wrap in a damp paper towel and defrost in the microwave. Finish under the broiler until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.

    These look delicious! I’d never have thought to put turkey with sweet potato before. I’m a big fan of sweet potatos though, so I’m sure I’d love something like this. They could make a great lunch or dinner, too. Which is great 🙂

    Kalin OMG! I WON’T be able to get this in my mouth fast enough, another hit for sure! I am going to omit the cheese and gluten tortillas and do a hash. I am stoked!
