1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped

Add water and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil Reduce heat to low; cook, covered for 10 to 12 minutes.  Top each lettuce leaf evenly with turkey mixture, tomato and cilantro.

And let’s throw in a side dish for good measure! Nothing like a good ole Spanish Rice!

Ingredients:(organic if possible)
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 1/2 cups uncooked brown rice *I used a brown rice/quinoa mix*
2 cups chicken broth *low sodium preferred*
1 cup chunky salsa

Directions:
Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
Mix rice into skillet, stirring often. When rice begins to brown, stir in chicken broth and salsa. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes, until liquid has been absorbed.

Here it is in all it’s glory, quinoa/rice blend topped with turkey taco meat, a pinch of cheese, organic greens, fresh salsa, and a few crispy tortilla chips!
