Turkey Taco Lettuce Cups

SERVING SIZE: 8-10 lettuce cups

12-16 ounces of ground turkey or around a pound

1 tablespoon taco seasoning

Drizzle of olive oil for sautéing

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese

1 head of lettuce (I used gem, but romaine, or butter lettuce works wonderful)

1/2 red onion, diced

1 ripe avocado, diced

Optional sour cream, Greek yogurt, or I’m using Trader Joe’s elote Greek yogurt dip which is DELICIOUS

The recipe:

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.

Add the ground turkey to the skillet and break it up with a spatula. Cook until browned and cooked through.

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning over the cooked turkey. Stir well to ensure the seasoning is evenly distributed.

You might want to add a bit of water if needed to mix the seasoning thoroughly with the turkey, sauteing for another 1-2 minutes.

While your turkey cooks, prep your red onion and cilantro by finely chopping & dicing.

Wash and prepare the lettuce leaves, separating them carefully to form cups.

Spoon the seasoned turkey mixture into the lettuce cups.

Top each lettuce cup with shredded Mexican blend cheese, red onion, cilantro, sliced avocado, and any optional toppings such as sour cream, Greek yogurt, or Trader Joe’s elote Greek yogurt dip.

Serve immediately and enjoy these delicious and healthy Turkey Taco Lettuce Cups!
