Leafy Green Turkey Tacos

Skip to the recipe

This recipe isn’t a typical skillet recipe.  Instead of preparing your greens with the other ingredients in a stockpot or large skillet, you use the greens as a taco “shell”. Butter lettuce and Boston lettuce, or other greens like mature curly kale or collard leaves, all work well.
