This was a great, low carb idea I got from Skinnytaste. I have home-mixed taco seasoning, and that was perfect to spice up the a ground turkey a bit. We really loved this, and since neither of us is a huge fan of taco shells, we actually preferred the lettuce! Pretty quick and easy for a weeknight meal, too. Top with any of your favorites – a little reduced fat cheese and sour cream helped temper the heat a bit. I serve this with Mexican-style black beans.
- 1 lbs lean ground turkey
- 1-2 T taco seasoning
- 1/2 small onion, minced
- 2 tbsp bell pepper, minced
- 3/4 cup water
- 4 oz can tomato sauce
- large lettuce leaves from Iceberg lettuce
Brown turkey in a large skillet. When no longer pink add dry seasoning and mix well. Add onion, pepper, water and tomato sauce and cover. Simmer on low for about 20 minutes.
Wash and dry the lettuce. Place meat in the center of leaf and top with tomatoes, cheese and salsa or whatever you prefer.
