Lettuce Wraps

These are a favorite, and super easy. You might as well buy a few of the ingredients- cause once you make it, you won’t be able to stop!! It really is so easy and yummy I made it for my lunch one day. And of course very healthy.

Hoisin Sauce can be found in the Asian aisle!! I got it at most stores- Albertson’s, Fred Meyer, Winco, BUT ironically I didn’t find it at our local Walmart. They had the most lame Asian section though. The nice thing about hoisin sauce is it is so flavorful that any nervousness you have about using ground turkey will be wiped away with your first bite.


Chili Garlic Sauce is also in the Asian isle. It was at Walmart so you shouldn’t have any problem. It is however VERY spicy. Most of the time I cook without it….because just a dab will spice it up, and we aren’t spicy people. However, my brother loves to dump a whole lot of it on his individual lettuce wraps.
