Ingredients

1 lb. ground turkey

2 tsp. olive oil

3/4 – 1 cup thickly sliced green onion

1/2 large head red cabbage, thinly sliced

1-2 heads iceberg lettuce

1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese, more or less to taste

1/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

1 1/2 T olive oil

1 1/2 T Worcestershire sauce

1T sweetener of your choice

1 tsp. Green Tabasco Sauce

Directions

Heat the 2 tsp. olive oil in a non-stock frying pan, add the ground turkey, and cook over medium high heat until the turkey is nicely browned, breaking apart with a turner as it cooks. (Most turkey will release some water; just cook until it evaporates.)While turkey cooks mix together the Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, olive oil, Worcestershire Sauce, sweetener of your choice, and Green Tabasco SauceWhen the turkey is nicely browned add the sauce mixture, stir to combine, turn heat to low, and cook until all the sauce is absorbed into the meat. (You should be able to see the bottom of the pan when you stir.)Slice the green onions, thinly slice the purple cabbage (using a mandoline slicer if you have one), and crumble the blue cheese. (affiliate link)Wash the lettuce if needed and separate into large cups.Fill each lettuce cup with a generous amount of sliced cabbage and some buffalo turkey and top with crumbled blue cheese.The buffalo turkey mixture and the sliced cabbage, lettuce, and blue cheese will keep in the fridge for a day or two, but don’t assemble the lettuce wraps until right before you’re going to eat them.Enjoy!
