Marinade for Turkey Burritos

Developed November, 2015. Another way to use leftover roast turkey is to make turkey burritos. This marinade adds both moistness and ethnic flavor to the turkey meat. 
1 c water
1 t chicken base (Better Than Bouillon™ Reduced Sodium Chicken Base is good)
1/2 t sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t cumin
1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 t chili powder
Heat ingredients to a fast simmer in a small saucepan for a few minutes with stirring. Cover and cool until just warm. Add up to 10 ounces (300 g) sliced or shredded roast turkey meat to marinate for 15 minutes. Drain and use for burritos. After use, the meat-flavored marinade can be thickened with corn starch for use as a gravy, e.g., over rice or potatoes. Variation: Subsitute roast chicken breast meat.
