Turkey Lettuce Tacos

After yesterday’s not so healthy dinner, I feel like I owe you guys something not so calorie laden. I was originally going to make these completely meat-free, but I had a 10-ounce package of ground turkey that I wanted to get out of the freezer. Feel free to replace the ground turkey with extra veggies (or black beans) for a vegetarian version. Much like my Greek Gyros, these will be served in a lettuce wrap, so load them up with lots of veggies!

Dice one onion and saute over high heat until softened.

While the onions are sauteing, remove the kernels from one ear of corn. (How to here.)

Add the corn to the onions along with 10 ounces of ground turkey.

Oh hey there peppers! At this point, I remembered I had a red pepper in the fridge and gave it a quick dice before adding it to the pan.

Once the turkey is cooked through, add in your taco seasonings. I added a tablespoon of cayenne and chili powder, as well as some garlic powder and oregano. Plus a dash of salt and pepper.

Stir to combine. Remove the pan from the heat and scoop into romaine lettuce leaves.

Top with your favorite taco toppings. For me, a little tomato, salsa, cheese and Greek yogurt.

    These look yum! Do you make your own taco seasoning or use a store-bought version? What’s your fave?

      I make my own taco seasoning since I usually have all of the ingredients on hand. I use 1 tablespoon of chili powder, 1/4 tsp of garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes and oregano, 1 tsp cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. It makes enough to fill up a regular size spice jar, so I keep it with my spices and then refill when needed!
