Shredded turkey and pinto bean burritos

I originally wasn't sure if I would like these but I LOVE them.Way better than you could get at any restaurant and pretty healthy ,too! I made ours with chicken.

1 tablespoon(s) canola oil
1 medium onion, halved and sliced
2 clove(s) garlic, minced
1 tablespoon(s) ground cumin
1 teaspoon(s) chile powder
1 can(s) diced tomatoes with green chiles
2 tablespoon(s) lime juice
4 cup(s) shredded cooked turkey or chicken
1 can(s) pinto beans, rinsed
6 10-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas or wraps, warmed
3/4 dash(es) grated Monterey or pepper Jack cheese
2 cup(s) shredded green cabbage
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin and chile powder and cook for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and lime juice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the onions are very soft, 16 to 20 minutes. Stir in turkey (or chicken) and beans and continue cooking until the mixture is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes more. Divide the turkey-bean mixture among tortillas (or wraps). Top each with cheese and cabbage, roll into burritos and serve.

I love ,love love this quote!....

by William Penn~

"I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again."
