Low Fat Turkey Burritos

Dice 1/2 onion
dice 5-6 cloves of garlic
1-1 1/4 lbs. lean ground turkey
1 Tbl. cocoa powder <-- (secret ingredient)
2-3 Tbl. chili powder
2 15 oz. cans of small red beans, rinsed
1 32 oz can of dice tomato with the juice
1-2 Tbl flour
Saute the diced onions and garlics with the meat until cooked, then drain off the grease. Add cocoa powder, chili powder, beans, and tomatoes, cook until done. Drain off a bit of the juice and blend with flour until smooth, add back to the chili. Warm burrito-size flour tortillas (maybe whole wheat?) & wrap chili mixture in tortilla with yogurt and hot sauce, serve. Leftovers keep well in the fridge and microwave or heat in skillet later.

Another burrito recipe: Get lean ground beef and diced onion and saute until done while liberally adding ground coriander. Wrap and serve.

And another: Take your tortilla and spread garlic hummus, fat-free refried beans, salsa fresca, and Sriracha hot sauce and microwave until hot. Works on corn tortillas as well as the flour ones.
