Macho Burritos

The name says it all--meaty and spicy, hearty and hot as you like it! I could serve this three times a week and still win Cliff's lip-smacking approval. Good garnished with fat-free sour cream, but remember to count optional calories accordingly. Ole!

Serves 4

8 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons chili seasoning
1 3/4 cups (one-15 ounce can) Hunt's Chunky Tomato Sauce*
1 (6-inch) tortillas
1/2 cup chunky salsa (mild, medium, or hot)
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) shredded Kraft reduced-fat Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a larger skillet sprayed with olive oil-flavored cooking spray, brown meat and onion. Add chili seasoning and 1 cup tomato sauce. Bring mixture to a boil. cover and simmer 5 minutes. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the mixture on each tortilla. Roll up tortillas. Place tortillas on a cookie sheet, seam sides down. Lightly spray tops with olive oil-flavored cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine salsa, parsley flakes, and remaining 3/4 cup tomato sauce. Evenly spoon mixture over tortillas. Bake 10 minutes. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons Cheddar cheese over top of each. Continue baking until cheese starts to melt, about 3 minutes.
