Whenever I am eating lower carb, I feel like I am sticking anything I can into lettuce wraps. Burgers, deli meat, leftover chicken, anything really - it's a perfect vehicle for so many dishes. And one of my go-to lettuce wrap recipes is today's Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps. They are packed with flavor from all the spices and perfect for almost any diet. Normally I load mine with toppings - salsa, yogurt or sour cream, cheese, and lots of chopped veggies. I also love adding some chopped dill pickles, it's delish.
