Turkey Tacos

Print

This recipe isn’t a typical skillet recipe because instead of preparing your greens with the other ingredients in a stockpot or large skillet, you use the greens as a taco “shell”. Butter lettuce and Boston lettuce or other greens, like mature curly kale or collard leaves work well.

Further Food Commentary:

Simple recipe that will keep you coming back again and again on Taco Tuesdays or any day of the week. The use of big, fresh pieces of lettuce as the "shell" cuts out those excess carbs that can contribute to leaky gut, Celiac's disease, and other gut issues. Turkey is a great source of lean protein that will be sure to fill you up and keep you going.
