Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps

Ok I'm not sure I can really express how much I love ground turkey. I have officially crossed over from beef and I'm never going back! Well except when it comes to hamburgers and meatballs... Anyway, I love the taste, texture, price and the leanness of ground turkey. This is the package I always get and the quality is great. The turkey combined with my amazing taco seasoning recipe makes these irresistible. And I don't think there is anything more refreshing than eating a lettuce wrap. So crunchy and fresh! And be sure to top these with all of your favorites.
