My family and I are trying to enjoy more healthy recipes and meals in the new year. One way that we have been eating healthier is by eating more extra lean turkey from Jennie-O.Whether you are trying to fuel your body better to achieve better performance and endurance (like me) or looking to shed some pounds (which is my husband’s goal), these are great! Simply switching ground beef to ground turkey cuts half the calories from a meal – which really is great! The southwestern turkey is flavorful, yet light, and paired with fresh avocado, tomato, and crisp lettuce leaves as wrapping, these are really hard to beat for a super-easy-to-make, low-calorie meal!
These southwestern turkey lettuce wraps have quickly become a new family favorite! Even my meat-loving husband loves these wraps!
