Ingredients


1 cup cubes Avocado
1 cup Cilantro (coriander) (chopped)
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Garlic (minced)
1/2 cup Green onion, scallion, ramp (chopped)
1/2 pepper(s) Red chili pepper (also chile or chilli)) (chopped)
2 large head Iceberg lettuce (chopped or shredded)
4 tsp Lime juice
1 tbsp Olive oil
2 cup Salsa, ready-to-serve
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Taco seasoning mix, McCormick
680 gm Ground turkey, lean (around 1 1/2 pounds, lean)

Instructions


In a non-stick pan, heat olive oil in a heavy frying pan, then add minced garlic and diced green chiles. Saute about 1 minute. Add cumin and taco seasoning and cook, about 1 minute. 

Then add turkey and salt and cook over medium-high heat, breaking apart with back of the turner as it cooks. Cook about 5 minutes, or until turkey is staring to brown. 

While turkey cooks, thinly chop green onions and set aside. Then wash cilantro, spin dry or dry with paper towels and finely chop. Cut off root end of lettuce, discard tough outer leaves, and wash lettuce. Spin dry.
 
When Turkey is lightly browned, add sliced green onions and cook about 2 minutes. Turn off heat, then stir in 1 cup chopped cilantro and 2 Tbsp lime juice. 

Use the inner, more folded part of the lettuce leaves to make the taco lettuce wrap. Spoon 2 to 3 large spoonfuls of turkey mixture into each piece of lettuce. Top meat mixture with salsa and avocado slices.
