Lettuce Wraps and Ground Turkey

Super simple, quick, and easy!!!

Of course you could use ground beef, shredded chicken,fajita meat or whatever you fancy; but in my version I used ground turkey…

What you’ll need:
-Head of lettuce
-Ground turkey
-Onions (I use red onions)
-Minced Garlic
-Taco seasonings (don’t use the whole packet)
- Any other seasonings you desire

I personally like to wash and separate my lettuce leafs before I start cooking, that way when I’m done I can jump right in.. LOL.. They don't have to be perfect you're basically filling them with the meat and folding...

Cooking the ground turkey:

- I use Pam Olive Oil spray and spray the pan
- Sauté chopped onions and minced garlic for 3-5 minutes
- Add turkey meat and season with whatever seasonings you want BUT DON’T ADD the TACO seasoning until all the meat has been cooked… That way you can tell the meat has been cooked all the way, adding the seasoning will mask it…

I use garlic powder, Italian seasoning, pepper, cumin, tiny bit of Adobo seasoning… Don’t have adobo, use a little salt… Or don’t.. It’s up to you…

Once the meat is all cooked, then add your taco seasoning… Then you’re finished!!

I log this by weighing out my portions of the ground turkey by ounces, guessing on the red onions and lettuce…
