Turkey and Bacon Lettuce Wraps


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 6-8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Iceberg lettuce leaves (or any lettuce variety of your choice)


Cook the Turkey Mixture:

  1. Cook Bacon:
    • In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove from the skillet, let it cool, and crumble it into pieces.
  2. Sauté Onion and Garlic:
    • In the same skillet, using the bacon drippings or adding a bit of olive oil if needed, sauté the finely chopped onion and minced garlic until softened.
  3. Brown Ground Turkey:
    • Add the ground turkey to the skillet. Break it apart with a spoon and cook until browned.
  4. Season Turkey:
    • Season the turkey with ground cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Stir well to evenly distribute the spices.
  5. Combine Bacon:
    • Add the crumbled bacon back to the skillet, mixing it with the seasoned ground turkey. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Prepare Fresh Ingredients:

  1. Dice Tomatoes and Avocado:
    • Dice the cherry tomatoes and avocado. Place them in a bowl.
  2. Chop Cilantro:
    • Chop fresh cilantro and add it to the bowl with tomatoes and avocado.
  3. Mix with Lime Juice:
    • Squeeze the juice of one lime over the diced tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro. Toss gently to combine.

Assemble the Lettuce Wraps:

  1. Prepare Lettuce Leaves:
    • Wash and separate the lettuce leaves. Pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Fill with Turkey Mixture:
    • Spoon the turkey and bacon mixture onto each lettuce leaf.
  3. Top with Fresh Ingredients:
    • Add a generous spoonful of the diced tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro mixture on top of the turkey.
  4. Serve:
