Healthy Turkey Lettuce Wraps

So you may actually recognize this recipe since YES I shared these lettuce wraps before years ago on my blog, but we love making these sooo much in our house that I just had to re-make them for you (with better photos of course).  The photos I took before were when I was brand new at photography and, although they tasted incredible, the photos were not exactly drool-worthy.
