Turkey Lettuce Wrapped Tacos

March 5, 2019

I had the idea to make these tacos because my husband kept making this ground turkey dish to take to lunch with him everyday. I’m not a big fan of eating ground meat all by itself but it was a good little mixture.

That’s when I thought…. THIS would be AMAZING as a taco!

And it turns out that yes, yes it did make an amazing taco…..


1/2 red onion sliced

1 cucumber, julienned

1/4-1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar (with-the-mother)

1 head boston lettuce

3 tablespoons Coconut Oil, divided

1 Onion, diced

1 pound Organic Ground Turkey

4 cloves Garlic, minced

2 teaspoons  Chili Powder

½ teaspoon Salt, adjust to taste

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 can sliced water chestnuts, chopped

  1. First, you want to pickle the red onion & cucumbers. Add them to two separate bowls & cover them with the vinegar. Let them sit until you are ready to eat.

  2. Clean the lettuce and pull the leaves apart. These will be your “taco shells”

  3. Add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to a skillet set to medium-high.

  4. Add the onion and sauté until they are soft.

  5. Add the ground turkey & spices. Cook thoroughly

  6. Once the meat is fully cooked add in the chopped water chestnuts

  7. Now you have all the pieces, just put together your tacos & enjoy!
