cheap & easy

...and delicious & healthy too! Need a quick dinner idea? Thanks to a few of my favorite Trader Joe's convenience foods, I threw this together last night in half an hour, while Kevin & the kids were at the park:

Turkey Breast Chili Burritos

can of TJ's organic vegetarian chili
jar of your favorite TJ's salsa (mine is garlic chipotle)
package of turkey breast cutlets
whole grain tortillas
baby spinach
avocado chunks

Pour 1/2 the jar of salsa over turkey (seasoned as desired), and bake until cooked through. Meanwhile, combine chili & remaining salsa in a skillet, and heat. Shred cooked turkey and add to the chili mixture. Warm tortillas and fill each with a scoop of turkey chili, a handful of spinach, and the avocado. Maybe even a little shredded cheese and a dallop of sour cream.
