    10 servings


  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 medium mango, peeled and chopped
  • 2 medium kiwifruit, peeled and chopped
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

    Took a lot of time to prepare with all the chopping, but I really liked this recipe! Neither my husband nor myself could even tell that we weren't eating ground beef. Next time, I'd like to try adding some cilantro and maybe even avocado to the fruit salsa.

    I have cooked this recipe many, many times and it is great! I haven't ever tried the fruit salsa yet, but just the burritos are awesome. My kids and husband love it and it makes enough for leftovers.

    LOVED THESE BURRITOS! I don't like fruit mixed with my meats at all, so I'm not sure why I tried this recipe, but I'm glad I did- It was delicious

    I agree with previous commenter, this is excellent! You could add rice to the burrito but they were perfect as is anyway
