Tips and Tricks For Making Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps
You can make the filling in advance and store it in the fridge or freezer (minus the toppings).
You could also try using ground chicken instead of turkey.
If you like your food a little spicier try adding hot sauce, more chili powder or red pepper flakes.
If you can't find Romaine lettuce then iceberg lettuce will work well.
