- Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add turkey, onion, and garlic. Cook, breaking apart turkey with wooden spoon, until turkey is no longer pink and onion begins to soften, 3−5 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin, salt, chipotle, and crushed tomatoes; simmer, stirring occasionally, until turkey is fully cooked and sauce thickens, 8−10 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon lime juice and brown sugar; remove from heat.
- Meanwhile, combine cooked rice, cilantro, lime zest, and remaining ½ tablespoon lime juice in small bowl.
- To serve, make 4 lettuce cups by layering 4 lettuce leaves together for each serving. Place 1 lettuce cup on each of 4 plates and top each with ¾ cup turkey mixture, ¼ cup rice, ¼ cup chopped tomatoes, and 1 tablespoon salsa; garnish with scallion and cilantro.
