Now take the mixture and fill up as many tortillas as you want. But make sure that you don’t fill up too much of the mixture because you will need some space for the wrapping. After the filling is done, fold the tortilla a bit from the bottom and then from both the sides. Wait, did we just miss out on something? Yes, indeed and you finish your recipe without it!

Then comes the last step, where all you have to do is put the burritos in a non-stick pan on the stove and brown them on both sides. It will add taste to them as the cheese is going to melt and that turkey that you added earlier is going to taste even better. Just make sure that you don’t overheat the burritos, hardly a few minutes on the stove and you will be good to go!
