Recipe: Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps

Enjoy these turkey taco lettuce wraps as a fun, healthy alternative to tacos. This recipe includes homemade taco seasoning which is much healthier than prepackaged mix from the grocery. You can control the amount of salt and are guaranteed to have no preservatives and no msg. I like to make a big batch of the seasoning to keep on hand for other's so easy and will store the same as your other spices!

Note: I adjusted my taco seasoning from the recipe by cutting the salt down to 1/2 tsp. I added 1/2 tsp of black pepper, 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper, and 1/2 tsp onion powder. It was perfect...and pretty.
