Ingredients for Mexican red rice:

We are going to make a Mexican red rice for this delicious Weight Watchers ground turkey burritos recipe. You will need cooked jasmine rice, chicken broth, white onions, garlic, Roma tomatoes, salt, tomato bouillon, and olive oil!

How to make seasoned rice for a burrito filling:

Start by adding the olive oil to a medium pot and heating it over medium heat.

Once it’s hot, add the rice and salt and stir well to coat all of the rice in oil. Let it cook and stir every two minutes until the rice starts to turn a light brown color.

Add the onion, chicken broth, garlic, tomatoes and tomato bouillon to a blender and blend until smooth.

Once the rice has browned up a bit, pour in the tomato mix. (Be careful, as the water will start to pop and sizzle.)

Bring the rice to a boil over high heat and reduce to low medium heat. Cover with a lid and let it cook for 20 minutes.

Once it has cooked, remove the lid and check to see how much moisture is left. If there is a lot, turn the heat down and let it cook with the lid off for 3-5 more minutes. If the moisture is gone, remove the lid, turn the heat off and let it sit for five to six minutes.

Fluff the rice and serve.

Ingredients for a homemade guac:

You will need a ripe avocado, some garlic powder, chili powder, and lime juice. Add some salt to taste for this easy guacamole spread that goes great with Weight Watchers turkey burritos.

This is a really simple guacamole recipe that doesn’t have onions which is great if you don’t like to eat raw onions. You can add some if you want but for me it’s better without!

How do I make homemade guacamole for Weight Watchers?
