Super quick and delicious kale burritos

Super quick and delicious kale burritos

These took almost no time to cook and they were super good.  Plus, the fillings are completely salt free! You could easily make this vegetarian by using tofu instead of ground turkey, and it could be vegan as well by just cutting out the cheese! Also great on a salad as leftovers!
