Try this low-carb, reduced-calorie version of this popular Mexican dish!

1 pound of ground turkey (93/7 recommended)
1 Romaine Heart
1 -2 garlic clove, chopped (optional)
1 tablespoon olive oil

Taco Seasoning (recipe follows)
1   Tablespoon chili powder
1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 Teaspoon onion powder
1/4 Teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 Teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 Teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 Teaspoons cumin
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon pepper


1. Mix to combine spices for the taco seasoning. Heat skillet on medium heat and add oil. Add turkey and cook over medium to medium high heat while breaking up the meat with a spatula. After 3-4 minutes add chopped garlic and taco seasoning.

2.Continue to cook until turkey is done.

3.Usually you will want to use half the taco seasoning from the above recipe and save the remaining for another taco night. For stronger taco flavor use more seasoning.

4.To prepare tacos, use leaf lettuce as a taco shell and add condiments as you choose

Add any additional condiments of your choice, salsa is one of my favorites. I also use black beans and jalapeños as well, but they are definitely optional.  You can also turn the leftovers into a turkey taco salad to add some variety.
