If you’re looking for a quick and simple dinner recipe than look no further. This dish packs plenty of fall flavor into a burrito. The best part is that it only takes about 10 minutes to make — you can use fully cooked meatballs for this dish and warm it through in the microwave. 

Notes

Leftover meatballs are perfect for this recipe or you can use any brand of fully cooked meatballs that you’d like. 

Ingredients

  • 10 Casa meatballs
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 4 six-inch whole-wheat tortillas
  • 4 Tablespoons whole cranberry sauce, divided
  • 1 red apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 red cabbage, thinly sliced

Directions

In a microwave, heat meatballs with 1 tablespoon water on high for 1 1/2 -2 minutes, or until meatballs are hot.

Place 5 meatballs down the center of each tortilla. Spread 2 tablespoons cranberry sauce alongside the meatballs. Place three apples slices down the center of each tortilla; garnish with thinly sliced red cabbage.

Roll or wrap burrito-style.

 

Fall Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Fall Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
