Skillet Burritos – Recipe by guest Heron, Natalie Baker

Comfort food – food that speaks to your soul.  Whether you are a weekly participant of Taco Tuesday or you just enjoy the occasional fiesta dish – this is one that you will love!

Our Skillet Burrito dish was brought to you by guest Heron, Natalie Baker!  Taking a traditional Mexican dish and making a few slight changes like using ground turkey instead of beef and plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, Natalie was able to make this dish a touch bit healthier!  Packed with protein, this dish is sure to please!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika

  • 4 corn or flour tortillas cut into wedges or strips
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or mexi-blend cheese

  • chopped green onion


  1. Heat oil in skillet on medium-medium high heat.  Once hot, cook through onion until translucent.  Add ground turkey until browned.  Drain meat.
  2. Return to heat and add all spices.  Stir in tomatoes, kidney beans & water and bring to boil.  Reduce heat and simmer approx. 5-10 minutes to heat up beans.
  3. Add to mean/bean mixture tortillas and stir in.  Add cheese to top.
  4. Remove from heat and add lid to skillet, allowing the cheese to melt.
