Make your own hearty burritos using sliced turkey and homemade cilantro lime rice topped with pico de gallo!
In a bowl, add tomatoes, 1/2 cup white onion, 1 tablespoon cilantro, chile, lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix and set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add rice and sauté until it is golden, about 3-5 minutes remaining. Add white onion, garlic and cilantro. Sauté for 1 minute. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork.
Place 1/2 cup cooked rice and ½ cup turkey down the center of a warmed tortilla. Fold the tortilla sides inwards, then fold top and bottom sides holding each fold as you roll into a tight wrap. Repeat for all burritos. Serve with pico de gallo on the side.
Add this easy burrito filling to your list of recipes to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers. If your holidays traditionally revolve around a Roast Chicken Dinner instead of turkey, simply swap in your leftover chicken!
