Ingredients for Turkey Sausage Spice Mix
Step 1. Preheat oven to 350F. Wrap tortillas in foil and seal tightly. Place on the lower rack of the oven while cooking the burrito filling.
Step 2. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes until browned.
Mix spices, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle evenly over the turkey. Turn the turkey and break it into bite-sized pieces. Continue to cook over medium heat until the turkey is no longer pink. Remove from pan and drain over paper towels.
Step 3. Add more olive oil to the frying pan and heat over medium heat. Chop green onion and shred potato. Add to heated pan. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Add minced garlic and green chilies. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Chop tomato and peppers. Add to pan and cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Push vegetables over to one-half of the pan.
Step 4. Whisk eggs. Add to pan and cook and stir until set and solid. Stir in cooked turkey. Remove from heat.
Step 5. Add 2/3 cup filling to a tortilla. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese over the filling. Roll up the tortilla and place it in the baking pan. Continue with the remaining tortillas.
Step 6. Mix Picante sauce and Greek yogurt. Drizzle over top of burritos. Sprinkle with a tablespoon of cheese and chopped green onion.
Step 7. Place the baking pan on the bottom rack of the oven. Heat for 15 minutes until the burritos are heated through and the cheese is melted.
