Turkey Lettuce Wraps

We are enjoying some fabulous spring weather here! It is a great lift to flooded spirits after an incredibly rainy March. This warmer weather is changing up our menu quite a bit. One of my favorite light summer dinners is lettuce wraps. The proteins, sauces, and everything can be interchanged. There are so many different ways to make lettuce wraps, and I found this specific recipe on Gina's WW blog. I have been frustrated lately by the lack of good lettuce leaves at the grocery store! So for this recipe, I purchased the prepackaged bibb lettuce and it worked out. This is an extremely quick and easy weeknight dinner.

You will need:
* 1.3 lbs lean ground turkey
* 1 tsp garlic powder
* 1 tsp cumin
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 tsp chili powder
* 1 tsp paprika
* 1/2 tsp oregano
* 1/2 small onion, minced
* 2 tbsp bell pepper, minced
* 3/4 cup water
* 1/2 8 oz can tomato sauce
* 8 large lettuce leaves

1) Brown turkey in a large skillet until it is cooked thoroughly. (It will no longer be pink)

2) Add the dry seasonings and mix well.

3) Add onion, pepper, water and tomato sauce. Cover and simmer on low for about 20 minutes.

4) Wash and dry the lettuce. Place the meat mixture into the lettuce leaves.
