Lettuce leaves offer cool contrast to this spicy turkey filling with crunchy bell peppers and fragrant ginger.
Ingredients

canola oil

1 tsp

uncooked scallion(s)

3 medium, thinly sliced

yellow pepper(s)

1 medium, seeded and diced

ginger root

½ tsp, fresh, peeled and grated

uncooked extra lean ground turkey breast

1 pound(s), lean

chili powder

½ tsp

low sodium soy sauce

3 Tbsp

lettuce

8 leaf/leaves, large, Iceberg variety

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallions, bell pepper, and ginger; cook, stirring constantly, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the turkey and chili powder; cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce.
  3. Divide the turkey mixture evenly among the lettuce leaves; roll up tightly and serve at once. Yields 2 wraps per serving.
Notes
We think ground turkey, with its rich flavor, is best suited to this dish, but you can use ground skinless lean chicken breast, if you prefer.
