Kids' Recipe: Turkey Taco Wraps

girl with ovenmit presenting turkey taco wrapsEverybody likes tacos. But tortillas used to make them can have extra calories, fat, and carbohydrates that you and your family may not want or need. That's why this Turkey Taco Wrap recipe from Chef Lizzie's FIT kitchen is so great. It uses a large lettuce leaf instead of a tortilla to hold all your ingredients together. These tacos are fun to make, so get your kids to roll up their sleeves and help you make them.

If you want to use tortillas instead of lettuce, buy the smallest ones you can find. There are some pretty huge ones out there! As Chef Lizzie says, if the tortilla is bigger than your face, it's too big.


2 slices turkey breast

2 large lettuce leaves (like Boston lettuce)

2 cheese slices (Chef Lizzie likes to use provolone.) or shredded cheese for sprinkling

1/4 cup canned black beans

Salsa, to taste (Chef Lizzie likes to use all-natural salsa.)


Rinse and dry the lettuce leaves.

Drain, rinse, and dry the black beans.

Layer 1 slice each of turkey and cheese onto each lettuce leaf. Top with half of the black beans. Then add salsa.


Fold the lettuce up like a taco and enjoy.
