Easy enough for everyone to help!

Get everyone involved in making dinner tonight! This simple recipe lets kids construct their own burritos, while adults do the “grilling.”


  • 1 package (10) extra large tortilla shells
  • 16 oz. deli-sliced smoked turkey breast
  • 7 oz. thin-sliced smoked provolone cheese
  • 10 oz. fresh baby spinach
  • 6 oz. jar of pesto
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • Cooking spray

How To

  1. Lay out desired amount of tortillas flat on a table or countertop.
  2. Spread 3/4 tablespoon of pesto evenly onto each tortilla.
  3. Lay 2 slices of provolone cheese in the center of each tortilla.
  4. Layer 4 slices of turkey on top of cheese.
  5. Place 1/4 cup of fresh spinach and desired amount of diced tomato evenly down the center of tortilla.
  6. Fold the top and bottom sides of the burrito about 1/4 of the way into the center, then fold the burrito over front to back until the fold is on the bottom. (Make sure to tuck tightly.)
  7. Spray a skillet generously with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
  8. Place burritos into pan and press gently to help seal.
  9. Grill 2–4 minutes on each side, until both sides are golden brown.

  • Let your kids put their favorite toppings in their burritos, such as black olives, banana peppers, pickles, onions, mushrooms or jalapenos.
  • Don’t overfill your burrito or it will be hard to wrap up and grill.
  • Here are some alternate tastes to try in your burrito:
  • — Ham and swiss cheese with honey mustard.
    — Taco meat, shredded cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce and onion. Top with fresh salsa and sour cream when you are finished grilling.
    — Hummus and your favorite vegetables.
