Have you had the idea of substituting lettuce instead of a bun for a hamburger? Some dining establishments have done it for years. But what about using a taco or wrap?

In the recipe, we get a chance to try a lettuce wrap. That means, no corn or flour tortilla to hold all the melted cheese, lime crema and seasoned ground turkey. For those of you on a low-carb diet, this is a quick and delicious dish to keep handy.

¡Buen provecho!

Food Lover’s Dictionary

Corn: Throughout Europe, “corn” has always been the generic name for any of the cereal grains; Europeans call corn maize, a
derivative of the early American Indian word mahiz. Corn is not only a poplar food, but the foundation of many by-products,
including bourbon, corn flour, cornmeal, corn oil, cornstarch, corn syrup, corn whiskey and laundry starch.

Cooking Tidbit: The original recipe called for pork. Instead, I substituted that with lean ground turkey. You may also try plant-based alternative meat as well.

Food Quote: “Omit and substitute! That’s how recipes should be written. Please don’t ever get so hung up on published recipes that you forget that you can omit and substitute.”
