My turkey burrito is a delicious mix of your spiced leftover turkey and fresh new ingredients. Every bite highlights a delicious different ingredient until you’ve eaten it all!

Ingredients for 4 servings

120gTurkey, cooked
2Tortilla Wraps (regular size)
100gCooked Rice
40gCucumber (diced)
10gSpring Onion (chopped)
50gAvocado (cubed)
85gKidney Beans (tinned)
1/2 tspDried Cumin
1/2 tspSmoked Paprika
1 tbspTomato Ketchup
1Lime (juice only)
5gCoriander (torn)
Spray Olive Oil


  • Medium Frying Pan
  • Bowl
  • Kitchen Foil


  • Put the frying pan onto a medium heat and add a couple of sprays of the oil.
  • Add the turkey and sprinkle with the cumin and smoked paprika.
  • Toss the turkey in the spices before adding the ketchup.  This is going to make your turkey lovely and sticky!
  • Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Add the rice, cucumber, spring onion, avocado and kidney beans to a bowl and squeeze over the lime juice.  
  • Stir this mixture before adding the sticky turkey to the bowl along with the torn coriander.
  • Give the mixture one last stir before assembling the burrito.
  • Place a piece of foil onto a baking sheet.  It should be larger than your tortilla wrap.
  • Fill the centre of the wrap with half of the mixture before wrapping the burrito and rolling the foil.
  • Twist the ends of the foil to seal the burrito and repeat to make the second burrito.
  • To serve, cut the burrito in half with a knife and peel back the foil.
  • Get ready to zing!


  • Don’t be tempted to prepare the avocado too soon as it will start to discolour.  You need the lime juice to stop it from turning a murky colour.
  • Feel free to use other beans instead of kidney beans.  I just used what I had leftover!
  • This dish is something you can prepare in advance and refrigerate.
  • For this recipe I used regular white long grain rice.
  • You could use 1 large tortilla wrap instead of regular sized ones.  My supermarket doesn’t seem to stock the really large ones right now!
