Fried Ground Turkey & Rice Burritos

Fried Burritos: A Surprisingly Heart-Healthy Dinner Option   My family loves Mexican food and although I'm not a huge fan of fried foods, they absolutely love fried foods of any kind, including burritos. Since I try to keep things on the healthy side and completely low sodium, I have perfected my recipe for fried burritos to satisfy their love of fried and spicy foods and combine it with my love of only serving them heart-healthy dishes.
