    I made chicken lettuce wraps a couple of weeks ago and they were a huge hit — so much better than the restaurant version!

    Lettuce wraps are some of my favorite things to eat! Sometimes I just order them from take out and have just that for dinner. Love that I can make ’em at home…and probably alot healthier!

    Made these just now. Husband put a cut-up avocado on his. He said it was delicious. A new recipe for us. I love them too. Thanks for this recipe.

    Frankly, I’ve never understood why people consider ground turkey bland. I love it. I probably eat a quarter pound while cooking it!

    This is my favorite lettuce wraps recipe! I’ve made them several times and always a crowd pleaser! I do wish it showed the nutrition info for these.

    Added a little Turmeric,
    Substituted :
    Cayenne Pepper for Red Chili Paste,
    Apple Cider Vinegar for Rice Vinegar

    No Water Chestnuts on hand – so added:
    Finely chopped:
    Carrots
    Celery
    Cabbage
    Onions
    With Frozen Red & Green Peppers chopped

    Using what I had on hand- but it was Great!!!
