Thursday Taste: Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Have you ever tried the lettuce wraps at PF Changs??  If so, then you know that are delish but not so summer body friendly.  So, while I am always on the lookout for new recipes that allow you to feel full without going crazy, I also like to attempt to recreate some of my favorites just in a more healthy, easy to cook way.  That is where these Turkey Lettuce Wraps come in to play.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1.5lbs Ground Turkey
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 Medium Onion – diced
  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 3/4 Cup Tomato Sauce

 

Instructions:

  • Put the Ground Turkey in a large skillet on medium heat, stirring frequently until all the pink is gone
  • Add in all the spices including the minced Garlic – stirring frequently for about 5 min
  • Add in the diced onion – let cook for about 5 min
  • Add in the water and tomato sauce – mix throuoghly – let cook for about 15 minutes
  • Give it a little taste test . . mmmmm
