step-by-step directions
  • Heat a large skillet on medium-­-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.
  • 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-­-10 minutes.
  • Spoon the taco meat into the Lettuce Wraps and top with accompaniments. Enjoy immediately
