Big Ole Burrito

For those of you who don't know, I'm back to teaching and working long hours.  I created this recipe after an especially long PTA night at our school.  Those are the nights that I fight the urge to call the closest takeout.  I enjoy playing sports, but going to the gym is the last thing on my to-do list, so my recipes need to be on the lighter side.

Here's to you my fellow working women!

Big Ole Burrito
3 Gals and a Kitchen

1 lb lean ground turkey
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
½ c sweet onion, chopped
1 (16 oz) can of chili beans, drained
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 c mozzarella cheese
1 can of pizza crust dough (Pillsbury)
1 egg white
Sour cream

Preheat oven to 400.

Heat a medium nonstick skillet on medium high, add the ground turkey and brown for a few minutes; add the green pepper, red pepper, sweet onion, and continue to cook the mixture until the meat has cooked through. Add the chili beans, taco seasoning, and ½ c mozzarella cheese to the above mixture. Meanwhile, roll out the pizza dough on a nonstick baking sheet, and then pour the meat mixture onto the pizza dough. Grab opposite sides of the dough and bring to the center and twist. Do this until none of the meat mixture is showing and the burrito takes a round shape. Brush egg white on top of the burrito, sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until the crust browns.

Serve warm with a dollop of sour cream.
