Tired of Turkey Yet? Turkey Tex-Mex Lettuce Wraps

IMG_5699 (Small)

Happy Friday.  As I mentioned before, my “fowl beast” was 21 pounds… for 4 people.  I’ve eaten more turkey this past week than I have in the last few years combined.  Now, I’m not complaining, that bird was delicious.  We’ve had turkey sandwiches, turkey tikka masala, turkey jalfrezi, just to name a few.  Yesterday, I needed something quick and healthy for lunch before heading off to the gym.  I had my camera nearby so I documented this one.  These are really easy, and taste amazing.  Finish off the rest of that bird with a little Tex-Mex flair.

Turkey Tex-Mex Lettuce Wraps

1/2 Pound Leftover Turkey, shredded or diced

1 Medium Onion, sliced

6 Leaves Romain Lettuce

1 Tsp Mexican Chili Powder

1 Tsp Adobo Seasoning

Pinch of Cumin

Garnish

Shredded Cheese

Habanero Salsa

1 Green Onion, diced

Heat 1 Tsp of vegetable oil in a medium skillet.  Add onions, sautee for 5 minutes, add turkey and seasonings, cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Clean the lettuce leaves, add the turkey/onion mixture, and garnish with cheese, salsa, and top with green onions.

If I had a bell pepper on hand I would have put half of it in with the onions.  Oh well.  Treat this like any other taco, do whatever makes you happy!  Cheers.
