Lettuce Wraps

I'm in the process of trying to break my addiction to food. It's a sad time. I drive by fast food restaurants just so I can roll down the window and smell what's cooking. I'm pathetic. We're eating a lot of grilled chicken and brown rice at our house. It aint pretty. The other day I remembered a recipe one of my facebook friends talked about. Lettuce wraps with turkey burger. It sounded a lot better than grilled chicken so I convinced my husband it wouldn't be that bad and I came up with this recipe. It surpassed both of our expectations. It was absolutely delicious. Hubby's main concern was that he would miss the tortilla too much- we were both pleasantly surprised that you kind of didn't even notice. It was fabulous. I'll take these wraps over grilled chicken and brown rice any day!

Lettuce Wraps
1 lb Turkey Burger
1 packet taco seasoning
1 head of lettuce
1 cup cheese
1 cup tomatoes

Cook turkey burger in a skillet until brown. Top with taco seasoning packet and cook according to package directions. While simmering grate 1 cup of cheese and chop 1 cup of tomatoes. Cut Lettuce head in half so you get leaf "bowls" with the outer lettuce leafs. Spoon turkey, cheese and tomatoes into each leaf and top with ranch. Roll like a burrito and serve immediately.
