They are naturally gluten-free, low-carb, keto, and paleo, whole30 & dairy-free without the cheese or sour cream. I find the outer leaves of Iceberg lettuce makes the best wraps, they are crisp and pliable and the leaves are large enough to make decent size wraps. More lettuce wraps I love are BLT Lettuce Wraps, Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps, and Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps Tips

  • Look for lettuce leaves that are large and sturdy such as iceberg, baby romaine or butter. You can also double up on the leaves.
  • Add your favorite taco fixings such as shredded cheddar, light sour cream, chives, black olives, jalapeno, tomatoes or whatever you like on your tacos.
  • The portions are generous, and if you’re kids want shells, you can easily bake a few for them and use the same filling.
  • Making your own taco seasoning is a healthier alternative to buying packaged taco seasoning, and uses less sodium, no sugar, no preservatives and no MSG. It also saves you money if you are on a budget. If you prefer to use the package seasoning, simply replace it with the spices listed here.

  1. Thank you so much for having all of these amazing ground Turkey recipes! This is yet another fabulous one. Loved the spice blend. Thanks again

  2. Both my husband & I love these!! I use 1-1/2 lbs of ground turkey & romaine lettuce instead of iceberg, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly. The flavor of the turkey taco meat is so much better than any prepackaged seasoning. Thank you for sharing a delicious, healthy recipe.
