Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps
Healthy eating is very doable with recipes like this one! My husband and I couldn’t get over how good these were and even my kids loved them! This is one of those recipes that I will definitely add to my dinner rotation because these tacos not only taste amazing but they are a breeze to prepare and they are something I feel great about feeding my family.
This is actually the first time I’ve used ground turkey for tacos. I’ve been stubborn for years and finally decided to try them with ground turkey. I was raised on the ground beef tacos, my mom made them on a weekly basis so I never really wanted to try swapping out the beef for turkey because I’ve always loved the other version so much.
Surprisingly enough I liked this turkey variation just as much! Yes, it has a different, non-beefy flavor profile but with all the seasoning in these you don’t even miss that flavor. These are just light and refreshing, a dinner you don’t feel weighed down with after eating.
Ingredients – Here’s What You Need
- Ground Turkey
- Onion & Garlic
- Spices, Cumin, Paprika & Chili Powder
- Tomato Sauce
- Chicken Broth
- Romaine Lettuce
You don’t need to add all the toppings listed to these (I’m just known to always load my tacos up), but I’d say the cheese and tomatoes are a must – and the avocados just make them that much better.
Then if you want to add more healthy fillers you could toss in some black beans or corn. These tacos are so incredibly delicious, I already can’t wait to make them again! This is healthy eating done right.
Tips and Tricks For Making Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps
- You can make the filling in advance and store it in the fridge or freezer (minus the toppings).
- You could also try using ground chicken instead of turkey.
- If you like your food a little spicier try adding hot sauce, more chili powder or red pepper flakes.
- If you can’t find Romaine lettuce then iceberg lettuce will work well.
