Crock Pot Spicy Turkey Lettuce Wraps
20 oz 93% lean ground turkey
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove
2 celery stalks
2 tsp Cumin
1 1/2 tsp Paprika
Pinch Cayenne Pepper (pending on how spicy you like things
1/2 c Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo
Part Skim Mozzarella cheese
Shredded Carrots (I used my food processor since whole carrots are cheaper than pre-shredded ones at the grocery)
1/2 avocado chopped
- Heat oil over medium high heat on stove top. Add onion and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then add ground turkey, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, and Frank’s RedHot *if you do not like spicy swap the last two for some ground coriander* Cook until turkey is about halfway browned. You still want some pink left.
- Transfer turkey to the crockpot. Add water until it covers ground turkey.
- Add celery stalks chopped into 2 or 3 pieces. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- Assemble and eat up!
