Pinterest Challenge 2016 – Ground Lettuce Turkey Wraps

As this weekend comes to a close – many of us (myself included) have spent time with family and friends – making (if not preparing) some delicious meals.  However, on the eve of another work week I want to share with you a quick, easy, and light recipe put in your meal rotation – Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps.

Having had company over this past Friday – I was looking for a recipe that would not have me slaving in the kitchen for hours on end.  

I love tacos but was looking for something a bit lighter knowing that this was a holiday weekend and also that Mark and I were going to do some heavy home renovation the next day.  Heading to Pinterest, I came across this recipe for Ground Chicken Lettuce Wraps – a copycat recipe of a certain famous Chinese Restaurant Chain.

Not having Ground Chicken and looking for a less hot version – I modified the one that I found and viola – Ground Turkey Lettuce wraps were created.

Ingredients for Turkey Lettuce Wraps

When all was said and done (and served with a side of long grain rice and roasted green beans – it was deemed a success.  I did not take a picture BUT there might have been some discussion on who got the last bit of ground turkey.

Pre plated meal

I will warn you (as Mark found out) – make sure you don’t overfill your lettuce wraps or you will have to make quick work of shoving the entire wrap into your mouth.

Enjoy!
