Turkey lettuce wraps

Turkey lettuce wraps

I love this meal when I’m looking for a light, filling meal. You can adjust based on your serving preferences, like ground beef instead of turkey. Also, if you’re cooking for a group you can also use taco shells for those who prefer it!

Ingredients:

  • 1.3 lbs 99% lean ground turkey
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 small onion, minced
  • 2 tbsp bell pepper, minced
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 oz can tomato sauce
  • 8 large lettuce leaves from Iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar

Directions:

Brown turkey in a large skillet breaking it into smaller pieces as it cooks. When no longer pink add dry seasoning and mix well. Add the onion, pepper, water and tomato sauce and cover. Simmer on low for about 20 minutes.

Wash and dry the lettuce. Divide the meat equally between the 8 leaves and place in the center of each leaf and top with your favorite taco toppings! I added some avocado and sriracha sauce…my faves!
