This is a pairing perfection. The burritos have a hint of spice but are not spicy.  They contain classic Mexican spices without emitting any heat. There was plenty of savory and salty notes that paired well with our wine that is fruit forward, has plenty of acid and is not a tannic bomb. 


Ground Turkey Burritos

1 pound ground turkey
1 16oz. can of refried beans
1 medium onion, chopped
1 4oz. jar diced jalapeños
1 package McCormick Original Taco Seasoning Mix
1 can 14 oz diced tomatoes (or we dice up fresh plum tomatoes)
1 8 oz. package of Mexican blend cheese
8 burrito size flour tortilla shells (can use corn if you prefer)
1- In a large pan, add some oil to coat pan and cook ground turkey until brown and juice runs clear. Remove and set aside.
2- Cook diced onions until translucent.
3- In a small pot, warm the refried beans.
4- Return cooked turkey to pan, add diced jalapeños, tomatoes, and seasoning mix. Stir until completely coated.

5- Warm an individual tortilla shell in the microwave for 5 seconds. (this makes it easier to roll) Place a dollop of refried beans, some of the turkey mixture and a handful of cheese onto one side of the tortilla. Be sure not to go too close to the edges or you’ll have a blow out.

6- Roll up the tortilla three quarters of the way, then tuck the two sides in and complete rolling.
7- Use a small portion of the refried beans to help seal the burrito. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top.

8- Bake in a 350o pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes. Just long enough to warm the burritos and melt the cheese.
