8 (10-inch) extra-large flour tortillas, warmed according to package instructions

  • 1.
    In a medium stockpot, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until softened. Add tomato paste; cook for 2 minutes. Add stock and ¼ teaspoon salt and bring to a boil; add rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • 2.
    In a large skillet or saucepan, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey, and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and sprinkle with cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and remaining 1 teaspoon salt.
  • 3.
    Divide turkey mixture and rice among tortillas. Top with beans, corn, cheese, avocado, sour cream and 1 lettuce leaf. Fold sides of tortillas over filling and roll up from bottom to enclose filling. Serve Southwest Ground Turkey Burrito with pico de gallo.
