chipotle burritos

Chipotle burritos are one of my very favorite foods to enjoy when eating out.

Sometimes, I’ll have the burrito as a burrito and sometimes as a bowl.  Either way, delish.

The good news is, you do not have to stick to the chicken, barbacoa or carnitas version.  There’s a new meat in town…..ground turkey.  Yes, indeed, ground turkey actually works as well, and is super healthy and so easy to whip up at home.


For this round, I chopped up one large sweet potato, five small zucchinis, one large green pepper, and one large onion to mix with the turkey.  However, the options are limitless regarding what veggies to throw into your chipotle burrito bowl or burrito.  Its really whatever you have on hand.

The greek yogurt mixed in at the end really kicks the flavor up a notch and gives it that creamy taste we all know and love at Chipotle.

Tips for these Chipotle Burritos with Ground Turkey and Veggies:

  1. Get creative with your veggies.  I’m so glad I’ve finally found a dish where I will actually look forward to eating sweet potatoes.  They are so darn good in this recipe.  Who knew that all they needed was to be mixed with yogurt, cheese, turkey and veggies?
  2. I used the finely shredded Mexican blend cheese.  I think the finely shredded worked great and helped to maintain that creamy texture I was going for with these burritos.
  3. Do not forget to stir in the Greek yogurt at the end.  It really adds to the flavor and texture of this dish.

I hope you enjoy these burritos and bowls as much as we did.  They really are such a fresh, healthy treat for dinner!

Enjoy!
