Naked Burritos

1 cup brown rice
Extra Lean Ground Turkey
Diced Onions
Taco Seasoning
Black Beans

First, prepare rice. I used boil-in-a-bag rice! Brown ground turkey with diced onions and taco seasoning. When meat is done, add beans, corn, and tomatoes to skillet. Combine until heated. Combine meat mixture with rice. Top with sour cream and taco sauce if desired.

13 points plus for the amount I used.

Hot Crash Potatoes

12 whole small potatoes (like new potatoes or klondike)
3 tbs olive oil
Black pepper
Rosemary (or I used an Italian Seasoning blend)

Preheat oven to 450. 

First boil potatoes in salted water until tender. Place on baking sheet and gently smash twice with potato masher. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle spices. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crisp and roasted.
