Turkey Lettuce Wraps – Quick and Easy to Make

Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Our house is crazy almost all of the time. I have four little kids, and one husband who is the craziest of all. We are constantly on the go, and don’t usually have time for a dinner that takes a crazy long time to prepare. The problem with meals that can be prepared really quickly, is that a lot of them tend to be bland and pretty unhealthy. These Turkey Lettuce Wraps are super flavorful, fresh and won’t leave you feeling completely weighed down after eating them. Plus – they are soooo very delicious!

These lettuce wraps take 20 minutes (honestly!) to prepare from start to finish, and they are made in just one pan. I am all about dinners that don’t produce a sink full of dirty dishes! We are all about spicy foods, so the amount of Sriracha I used in these does not seem spicy at all. If you are a little more sensitive to spice, you could lessen the amount that you use, or even leave it out entirely. I really hope you enjoy these as much as I do! Please let me know what you think! Enjoy!
