{5 Ingredient Salsa Turkey Lettuce Wraps}

You guys know that I have 3 kids....5 and under...so you can imagine that I don't have a ton of time in the afternoon to spend cooking a complicated dinner. I would LOVE to venture out a bit and try some really crazy recipes but let's face it....who has time for that??



 This recipe is PERFECT for a busy weeknight or really any night of the week. It calls for 5 ingredients and is super versatile. I like to use the fresh salsa from the deli because I find that the ingredients are better. You could really use any salsa though...just check the ingredients and use your favorite. I can whip this meal up in 20 minutes and my entire family loves this!

Serve this salsa turkey on a bed of rice, in a baked sweet potato, on top of a salad or in lettuce cups! This would also be a great meal prep protein because you can use it in so many ways! I hope you guys love it as much as I do!




Salsa Turkey Lettuce Wraps
  • 1 pound ground turkey (93% lean)
  • 2 (16 oz.) containers of fresh salsa ( I love Garden Fresh Gourmet Jacks Special Mild Salsa)
  • 1 mango (chopped)
  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • lettuce (butter, iceberg, romaine) **torn into small pieces to make cups
Add ground turkey to a medium skillet. Cook on high until meat is thoroughly cooked. Add salsa. Stir to combine and then cover with a tight lid. Let this cook on high for 10 minutes or until all of the liquid is absorbed. 

Add mixture to lettuce cups and top with chopped mango and avocado. 

How easy is that?? YUMMM!!
