Taco Lettuce Wraps

Healthy and simple! Ground turkey, black beans, tomatoes, and corn are wrapped up in romaine lettuce instead of taco shells. 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen corn
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • romaine leaves, rinsed and dried

Directions

  • Prep 5 minutes
  • Cook 20 minutes
  • Ready In 25 minutes
  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground turkey in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in corn, black beans, diced tomatoes, and taco seasoning. Bring to a simmer and cook until heated through, 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Lay lettuce leaves on a flat surface and fill with turkey and bean mixture.

Footnotes

  • Cook’s Note:
