They are low carb and can be made even healthier by using ground turkey. I’m not a big fan of using ground turkey but adding in the spices really upped the taste and brought a new appreciation for ground turkey.

To build, start with the lettuce leaf with the concave portion facing up.  Sprinkle 1/8 of the cheese along the center rib, then the meat and beans, the avocado slices, olives and onions.

Serve with sour cream and salsa.

Taco Lettuce Wraps are easy and tasty to make. I would love to be able to say you won’t even miss the taco shell or soft shell but I’d be lying. While these are tasty and do satisfy my taco cravings, there are times when I just gotta have that taco shell.
