Turkey and Quinoa Burritos


I have to admit, these don't look all that great in my picture.  My poor photography skills combined with a camera I was trying to figure out, turned what was a delicious and filling meal into something with too much light and almost unappetizing to look at.  But I hope the picture won't deter you from trying this recipe.  It is a men's health recipe bill found and is super easy to make.
