Thai Turkey Wraps

I've now made these twice in the last two weeks, my husband loved them so much he was offering tastes to several of our neighbors! Inspired by our friends Jenn and Josh, and our love for PF Changs chicken lettuce wraps, behold the Thai Turkey Wraps. I like ground turkey better than dealing with chicken breasts, and I love peanut sauce. If you want a super easy, relatively healthy, summer time meal here you have it!

white rice (for however many you are cooking for)
lettuce leaves (I buy the Trader Joes bag of the hearts of romaine leaves, but a head of iceberg lettuce would work just fine, just pull each leaf off individually and leave it whole)
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 chopped red onion (diced)
1/2 chopped red pepper (or any other color)
1/2 chopped pepper (in another color)
2 chopped green onions
4 garlic cloves minced

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup oil (I used vegetable)
a dash or two of red pepper flakes

1. Begin rice cooking
2. Chop all veggies and mince garlic.
3. Sautee turkey until brown with the garlic and red onion
4. When almost cooked add peppers and green onion. Simmer together until peppers reach the desired level of cooked for you (I like them a bit crisper than some might)
5. Mix together all sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan until peanut butter is melted
6. Pour into pan with meat mixture and simmer for a few minutes until it is mixed together and the sauce thickens a bit.
7. When rice is done, you're ready to eat! Serve by placing a small scoop of rice and scoop of meat mixture in each lettuce cup. Wrap and enjoy!
