  • 6 large collard green leaves, free from holes
  • 1 Tbsp olive or canola oil
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 pack Mrs. Dash salt-free Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 1 15-oz can low sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 6 oz shredded reduced fat Mexican cheese blend
  • Jarred Salsa
  • 2 small avocados, chopped
  • Low Fat Sour Cream (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil and submerge the collards for 2 minutes in boiling water. Drain and set the collard leaves aside.
  3. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute 10 min. Add ground turkey and taco seasoning mix and saute until turkey is cooked through, about 5-8 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in rinsed bean.
  5. Lay one collard flat, vein side up. Spoon 1/2 cup turkey and bean mixture onto the trimmed end of the collard and sprinkle with 1 oz cheese. Top with 2 Tbsp chopped avocado and 1-2 Tbsp salsa, to taste. Fold each side over the filling and roll like a burrito. Repeat with remaining collard leaves.
  6. Arrange the burritos in the baking dish and bake, covered with foil, for 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve topped with lowfat sour cream, if desired.
