Aired February 22, 2016

Serves 4 to 6
Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/2 pounds ground dark meat turkey or turkey breast
1 onion, finely chopped, divided
1 poblano or mild green pepper, finely chopped
2 to 3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon New Mexican green chile powder or mild chile powder, such as ancho
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup turkey or chicken stock
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 ounces cream cheese (4 tablespoons), cut into small pieces or 1/4 cup sour cream or crème fraîche
1 rib celery, finely chopped
2 14- to 15-ounce cans white beans, drained
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
Green hot sauce, such as Bronx Hot Sauce (available at bronxhotsauce.com) or jalapeño Tabasco
6 to 8 large flour tortillas
1/2 pound pepper jack cheese, shredded
Natural olive oil cooking spray
 

Preparation

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil, one turn of the pan.

Add the ground turkey and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add half the onion, the poblano, garlic and spices; season with salt and pepper. Cook stirring often, until soft, 7-8 minutes. Add the stock and Worcestershire, and cook until the liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cream cheese and remove from the heat.

In a small skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, one turn of the pan, over medium-high heat. Add the celery and remaining onion; season and cook, stirring often, until soft, 2-3 minutes. Add the beans and thyme, and cook until warm, 2-3 minutes. Add the green hot sauce to taste.

If the tortillas are stiff, wrap them in a kitchen towel and microwave them for a few seconds to soften.

To assemble the burritos, pile some of the turkey mixture on the lower third of each tortilla, leaving a 2-inch border on either side. Top with some of the cheese and beans. Fold in the sides then roll up tightly.
Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Spray the burritos lightly with cooking spray and place them in the skillet, seam-side down. Cook until crispy and browned, about 2 minutes per side. Cut in half and serve.
