Taco Roll Ups

Back before our kid days Jason and I used to go to Chili's where I enjoyed the Southwest Chicken Eggrolls. Gimme a second... and let me reflect on that. 

Okay, I am back. I got a hankering for those just the other week, and I decided to put lean ground turkey, corn and blackbeans along with brown rice in a tortilla. It's not an exact replica by a long shot but pair it with my Cilantro Lime Avocado Ranch and it's like a little plate of happiness.

So this is my version of a the Chili's Southwest Chicken Eggrolls Copy cat. Or as I am calling it "taco roll ups." You're welcome. 

What you'll need:

1/3 pound lean ground turkey (chicken, pork, beef would all work.)

1 cup cooked black beans

1 cup cooked corn

1/2 large onion, diced

2 cups cooked rice

Taco seasoning 

1 cup shredded cheese

8 tortillas

Mix everything but your cheese (and tortillas of course) in a large bowl. 

Then you will scoop the contents into your tortillas and sprinkle with cheese and roll up.

Line up your rolled up tortillas in a pan and brush them will a little olive oil. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

I served mine with a little home made pico de gallo. So good!
