low-carb turkey tacos

mood: dissectional
listening to: russian circles :: enter/new macabre

the slacker in me took over again, although this time, it wasn't completely my fault! this work thing keeps getting in the way and it removes every ounce of motivation or energy that i normally have and pushes me in the direction of the kitchen. also, i hadn't found anything that sounded the least bit exciting and i couldn't come up with any alterations of old favorites and so the blog went unattended.

but... i had a stroke of genius this weekend with the extra time off. initially, this was to be a low-carb version of tacos, but as the recipe began to take shape, it began to resemble more of a mexican version of chinese lettuce wraps. either way, they are good and this is a meal that could be a dinner or a tangy appetizer.

canola oil
ginger, minced
lg garlic clove, diced
cracked peppercorns
4 green onions, chopped
2 jalapenos, chopped
red pepper, chopped
turmeric, 1/2 tsp
paprika, 1/2 tsp
1 lb ground turkey

taco seasoning
ground coriander, 1 tsp
garam masala, 1 tsp
1 cup water
3 tbsp worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp white vinegar
splashes of hot sauce

- in large pan, add canola oil and sauteƩ ginger, garlic, onions, both peppers, turmeric and paprika for 3-4 minutes on medium-high heat
- remove and set aside
- cook ground turkey till meat is whitish color
- add seasoning, coriander, garam masala, worcestershire sauce and vinegar
- add water and hot sauce to desired preference, so that all seasoning is mixed thoroughly
- peel layers off lettuce head and cut to desired size
- add meat, guacamole and salsa

i don't know which one sounds more appealing, but if you have a thought... let me know, i'm open to changing up titles
