Taco Lettuce Wraps

Who doesn't love Mexican food? Cheese dip, guacamole, salsa and margaritas! I could eat Mexican food probably everyday of the week if I could. Giving up the tortilla on my usual taco was not something I wanted to do! I usually eat my hamburgers without a bun and make it into a lettuce wrap and of course P.F chang's lettuce wraps are TDF.. So why not tacos? I love this recipe because I can eat a ton for just a few calories. I don't know about you but I'm down for food :)

1.5lbs lean ground turkey or beef 1 jar of medium salsa 1 Tsp cumin 1 Tsp chili powder 1 Tsp garlic powder 1 Tsp paprika 1/2 Tsp oregano- if you don't have it don't worry (I sometimes sprinkle some cayenne In it for added spice) 1/2 cup of water 8 large lettuce leaves

Optional additions -Sour cream (I use Plain greek yogurt) -Cheese -Avocado

Directions -Brown turkey or beef on medium heat breaking it into small ground pieces. -After its no longer pink add the dry seasoning mix it well -Add salsa, water and seasonings to the meat mixture stir well -Simmer on low covered for about 20 minutes until it has thickened.Place taco mixture in center of lettuce wrap and top with your favorite taco toppings! Serving size is 2 lettuce wraps -255 calories per 2 wraps (calories will be higher with additions ex: cheese, sour cream etc.) This makes 4 servings (8 tacos)
