Ground turkey is a weekly staple at our house and we are adding this ground turkey burrito bowl into the rotation. We make a number of Weight Watchers turkey recipes a week.
We love them because the recipes are low in calories and they taste great. We tend to replace many of our recipes that call for ground beef with ground turkey. It makes the recipes much lower in points which is something I always try to create.
The weight-loss train has slowed way down here and I’ve been trying really hard to get it back on track. One of the ways is by finding lower point ingredients to use in recipes and that’s why you’ll find so many ground turkey recipes on the site.
I generally use the leanest ground turkey available to keep the protein ingredient at zero points. Of course, as a rule, ground turkey is pretty low in points which always makes me happy.
I’m including the point value for each ingredient so that is you need to alter for a lower point recipe you’ll know where points can be reduced.
This recipe makes 4 bowls.
WW Blue Points with all the toppings: 8
