About Ground Turkey Tacos Lettuce Wrap
Who doesn't love to cut some calories? Especially if it means saving room for some dessert, right? 😉
With summer in sight, Ground Turkey Tacos Lettuce Wrap is a low calorie, low carb, gluten free, Keto friendly recipe.
WOW! That's a mouth full but so worth it.
Ground Turkey Taco’s is a great alternative to other protein as it’s low in fat. Ground Turkey is both light and dark meat ground up together and can be used and substituted in any recipe that calls for Hamburger.
I prefer to use an 85/15 Fat Content as it gives just the right amount of fat to cook in.
But remember to drain off all excess fat. You don’t want that in your Turkey Taco Recipe
Have you ever cooked ground meats in the Instant Pot? Let me tell you, it's my new favorite!
Place your meat on a trivet with water or broth under it and cook. When it's done remove the liquid and trivet and break up the meat. Super Simple! Don't forget to season with salt and pepper.
You will want to clean out the drippings from the meat and wipe it out. Then add your cooked ground turkey back into the pot and with a wood spoon or spatula chop up the cooked meat.
It will fall apart in minutes.
Set your Instant Pot to "Saute'" and add in your onions and bell peppers. It will only take a few minutes. The vegetables will soften up and add excellent flavor.
Make sure and take a look at these other Taco Tuesday Recipes. Pork Street Tacos are wonderful as are Shrimp Tacos. Any way you decide to make this Mexican Favorite, you will love!

I am saving this on Pinterest! Actually made tacos this past Thursday and would have so rather have a healthier option. Thank you!
You are Welcome Albany! This is a good healthy option without losing out on the flavor we love!
Wow! I LOVE this idea! I had no idea you could cook ground meat in an instant pot, just got one for Christmas 🙂
Oh yes! It's so easy to cook ground meat in your Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker. I love that I can set it and forget it and tend to other family needs.
I love the flexibility of tacos and everyone being able to make their own the way they like them.
In my home this is mandatory... Some like Salsa, others want fresh tomatoes, some want sour cream, and others...well they don't! haha...
Such a smart and healthy dinner. We love lettuce wraps, but I haven't used ground turkey. I look forward to making these soon!
Yes it is a smart and healthy dinner for sure...but it is also packed with great flavor too...so you aren't missing anything!!
