  • 1
    4 teaspoons Canola Oil
    1.25 pounds (20 ounces) 99% fat-free (extra-lean) Ground Turkey
    Heat a large skillet on medium-­â€high heat and add 4 teaspoons of Oil. When the Oil is hot and shimmering, add the Turkey in pieces in a single layer in the pan. Brown the Turkey while breaking it up with a whisk, about 5 minutes. Transfer the Turkey to a dinner plate.
  • 2
    2 teaspoons Canola Oil
    1 small Sweet Yellow Onion; diced (about 1 1/2 cups or use regular yellow onion)
    1 1/4 cups Frozen Corn Kernels
    1 cup canned Seasoned Black Beans; drained
    1 cup Fat-Free Mild Salsa
    1/2 cup Reduced-Sodium Chicken Broth
    1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Reduced-Sodium Soy Sauce
    1 teaspoon Chili Powder
    1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
    Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    Place the pan back on the heat and drizzle in 2 teaspoons of Oil. Sauté the Onions until tender, about 5 minutes, reducing the heat as needed. Add the cooked Turkey, Corn, Black Beans, Salsa, Chicken Broth, Soy Sauce, Chili Powder, Cumin and about 6 grinds of Pepper. Cook until hot and some of the liquid has evaporated, about 5-­â€10 minutes.
  • 3
    12 Whole Leaf Lettuce Cups; using 2 heads Bibb or Butter Lettuce
    Fresh Cilantro Leaves
    Fat-Free Shredded Cheddar Cheese
    Lime wedges
    Spoon the taco meat into the Lettuce Wraps and top with accompaniments. Enjoy immediately

    Recipe notes:
    1. This recipe yields a mildly spicy flavor. For more or less spicy heat, adjust the amount of Chili Powder.
    2. For best results, use the inner leaves for the nicest lettuce cups. Save the remaining lettuce for your next salad.

    Makes 6 servings, nearly 1 cup filling each (with 2 Lettuce cups)
