Recipe | "Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps" by Sue Ready



Cook's Notes: A low carb alternative to traditional tacos. Packed with protein, veggies and tons of flavor it's hard to stop at eating one. Your choice of salsa will determine how much hotness is in the meal. My favorite salsa for these lettuce wraps-Mrs. Renfro's Raspberry Chipotle.

Some suggested add ins include: avocado slices, black or pinto beans (rinsed) and canned mexicorn or frozen corn thawed, olives. Recipe makes 6-8 lettuce wraps, depends on size of the lettuce leaf.

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey 
  • 1/2 jar of your favorite salsa 
  • 1 tsp. dry taco seasoning mix

  • 1 cup diced sweet onions
  • 1 cup diced grape tomatoes
  • 1 small can steam fresh Mexicorn or 1 cup fresh corn
  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed
  • 1 cup low fat Mexican Four Cheeses
  • Butter lettuce leaves
Directions:
  • Brown turkey with onions, drain and crumble meat. 
  • Add in rest of ingredients except cheese and lettuce. 
  • Cook uncovered on medium low 20 minutes.
