How to make these cheeseburger burritos
You'll want to have about 2 cups of baked french fries ready to go. My recommendation is to cook up a batch of these Baked Dill Pickle Fries for all the pickle lovers! After that, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble in 1 pound of lean ground turkey, and continue cooking for 6-8 minutes, or until ground turkey is cooked through. Stir in 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, remove from heat, and set aside.
Next, lay a 10" flour tortilla on a clean work surface or cutting board. Spoon in ¼ of the ground turkey, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of shredded cheddar cheese. Top with a ½ cup serving of baked fries, and burger toppings such as lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, and pickles. Roll together, burrito-style, and repeat 3 more times to make 4 burritos.
- You can make this vegetarian-friendly by using crumbled tofu, or meatless crumbles.
- Make them your own by using your favorite burger toppings. Avocado and caramelized onions are two of my favorite extra ingredients!
- Bake the fries before you start cooking the ground turkey so they are ready to go when you make the burritos.
Can this burger burrito be frozen?
Possibly, but probably not. I have not tried, so cannot verify, but would believe the fries would get soggy instead of their crispy selves. If you do choose to freeze, leave out the toppings like pickles, lettuce, and tomato, as those would not hold up after reheating.
Can these be made vegan/vegetarian?
Yes! Start with a base of crumbled tofu or meatless crumbles, and use a vegan-friendly Worcestershire if following a vegan diet. Use a dairy-free shredded cheese instead to make it vegan-friendly.
How long do these last?
I wouldn't recommend making them ahead of time, as the toppings and fillings can make the burritos soggy, and the baked fries would no longer be crispy. If you want to prep ahead and save time, you can cook the ground turkey, and refrigerate for up to 4 days. Simply reheat while the fries are baking before preparing burritos.
Money-Saving Tips for these Cheeseburger Burritos
Buy in bulk. Purchase items you use often in bulk form, such as potatoes, ground turkey (or tofu) for a more cost-effective option.
Shop store brands. Utilize store brands for items like condiments or tortillas, which tend to be less expensive without sacrificing flavor or quality.
Make the most of sales. Purchase ground turkey when it is on sale, and freeze until you are ready to make the burritos.
