  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning homemade or store-bought
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt only if not already in the taco seasoning, like in the homemade version above
  • 12 whole romaine heart lettuce leaves
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved (half-pint)
  • 1 avocado pitted, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup salsa no sugar added


  • Add ground turkey to a skillet. Cook over medium heat for 8 minutes until browned. Add 1/3 cup water, taco seasoning, and salt (if not already an ingredient in the seasoning). Allow to cook for 3 minutes more. Remove from heat.
  • Double each lettuce leaf so the top fits into the second and you have 6 doubled leaves altogether. Spoon in the meat mixture. Add cherry tomatoes and avocado pieces. Top each with salsa.
  • Serve and enjoy!

  1. At first it looked like the taco mixture was in bell pepper halves and then I saw it was lettuce…ok….but why not bell peppers. I’m going to try it because I have one, with the chopped up pork I have. I’ll add lettuce to it. Thanks for the idea.

  2. It was delicious but for tender taste buds I would only put 1/4 chili powder….it was SPICY….

    1. No, the salsa is not causing the points. Avocado is not a zero point food and only ground turkey breast is zero points.

  3. I have been on a Weight Watchers diet for two weeks and I have totally enjoyed every meal.
