Buffalo Wing Turkey Lettuce Wraps

  • Yield: servings


1pound lean ground turkey
1/2cup onion, finely diced
1teaspoon minced garlic
3/4cup carrot shavings (use a vegetable peeler to make shavings)
1cup celery, sliced thinly
1head iceberg lettuce, leaves removed to form cups
salt and pepper
1/2cup Frank's Red hot Buffalo wing sauce
blue cheese crumbles or blue cheese dressing to drizzle over the top (see note)


  1. In a large skillet, saute the onions over medium heat until soft (3-4 minutes). Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add ground turkey, season with a dash of salt and pepper, brown meat and cook until cooked through. Drain any grease if necessary.
  2. Return meat to pan and stir in the wing sauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer for a couple of minutes.
  3. Prepare lettuce cups. Place spoonful of meat into lettuce cup, top with a few carrot shavings and chopped celery.  Sprinkle with some blue cheese crumbles and/or dressing. Wrap up and start eating!

Note: I used some blue cheese crumbles and a tablespoon of Litehouse Bleu Cheese Vinaigrette, but don’t feel like you have to have the dressing to make these…they are good with just the crumbles too.
