I decided to make stuffed burritos at home one night, so I picked up an Oretega burrito mix at Target and I will say honesty, next time I will make them with taco seasoning because the Ortega burrito seasoning was FAR too spicy. So spicy indeed I had to add some sour cream to the meat in hopes of muting the spice, but even that didnt help. We had a few people over for dinner and everyone mentioned how spicy they were. I felt bad; my boyfriend couldnt even finish his because the spice was just killing his taste buds. I fought through the burn because outside of JUST the spice they were delicious.. They would have been a homerun if I substituted taco mix (which I originally planned on using) until I spotted the burrito mix. Hoping to further mute the spiciness of the seasoning pack, I layered refried beans into the tortilla shells which helped a bit. Heres what I used: 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey 1 packet reduced sodium Ortega Burrito seasoning 5 tablespoons fat free sour cream 1 can fat-free refried beans 1 pack Trader Joes Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas Josephs Flax Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas I had some Trader Joes Whole Wheat Tortilla shells I wanted to use up, so I filled those with 2 ounces of meat to 1 tablespoon of fat free refried beans. With the remaining mixture I mixed those onto the Josephs wraps using 4 ounces of meat mixture and 1/3 cup refried beans). I personally found these to be more palatable because the s[ice was minimized. I paired the burritos with a simple tossed salad. The Josephs wraps were 9 points plus for the 2,whereas the Trader Joes wraps were 8 points plus for 2. QUESTION: Have you ever made burritos at home? Image is mine do not take or use. Thank you.
