Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Turkey Lettuce Wraps

The 21 day fix extreme has some really easy fun new recipes in that that come along with the meal plan guide book. This recipe was one of them! They tasted great. I added the cheese and a little bit of guacamole for extra flavor! Even though these look really pretty I decided to cut it up like a salad after trying and failing at eating them like a wrap. I don't think I was rolling them the right way. None the less they still hit the spot! The recipe called for tomato sauce but I skipped it. 

  • 1 1/2 lbs raw 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 6 large lettuce leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add turkey; cook stirring frequently for 5 minutes or until no longer pink.
  • Add garlic powder, cumin, salt, chili powder, paprika, and oregano; mix well. 
  • Add onion and bell pepper, cook stirring frequently for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Add in the water and diced tomatoes 
  • Once your finished cooking everything serve on a fresh leaf lettuce. I topped mine with some cheddar cheese and a little dollop of guacamole.
