Sometimes you want the flavors of a delicious and classic burrito, but without the work. And by work, we mean having to roll the darn tortilla again and again, and still not being able to seal it properly. That's a lot of work for a weeknight! Here, healthy turkey seasoned by deliciously zesty taco seasoning combines with fresh veggies and dollops of cheese and sour cream. (And just in case you missed the tortilla, we've got crispy tortilla strips to garnish the whole thing.) The best part? The whole thing cooks in one pan. Perfecto! Tip: Best way to remove ribs and seeds from a red bell pepper? Cut off top and bottom of pepper, then either carefully cut or tear out the seed portion.
