Smoked Turkey Burritos Recipe

I smoked a whole turkey the other day on my Kamado grill. For some reason at my house no one ever eats the legs and wings. I usually throw them into the pot when I make stock just so I don’t waste them. I decided today to turn them into a really tasty burrito filling. OMGosh these burritos were amazing. I will be doing this from now on whenever I have turkey legs or wings, smoked or not.

I made the Mexican Rice I made a few weeks ago to go with it and some Refried Beans with no added fat. Instead of adding bacon fat to the beans, I cook them in chicken stock. It adds the additional flavor to make up for the lose of the bacon fat and the beans are so much better for you. To a lb. of beans I add 3 cups of chicken stock, an onion and 3 – 4 cloves of garlic. I don’t add salt until towards the end of the cooking time, salt can toughen the beans making them harder to get tender. I add mine after I mash the beans.
