5 from 1 reviews


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 24 teaspoons coconut oil (or olive oil)
  • 1 avocado, cut into thin slices
  • Red onion, cut into thin slices (you won’t need much, less than half, but exact amounts depend on preference)
  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • Lime, sliced into wedges


  1. Add your ground turkey to a medium bowl and add your salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and onion powder
  2. Mix together with your hands until it is evenly combined
  3. Form into 4 patties and set aside
  4. Heat a large skillet or grill pan over medium heat with a few teaspoons of coconut oil (or olive oil). If pan gets dry, you can add the remaining few
  5. When hot, add the patties into the pan and cook until the center is no longer pink and the patties are well browned on both sides
  6. Meanwhile, slice the bottom of the romaine lettuce head off (this allows the leaves to peel off more easily)
  7. Peel the leaves off the head of romaine and set aside
  8. When the burgers are cooked and have cooled for a few minutes, slice them into thick strips so you can place them on the lettuce wrap more easily
  9. To assemble the lettuce wraps, place 2 of the romaine leaves on a plate, add one patty’s worth of slices, 1/4 of the avocado, a few slices of red onion, and a generous squeeze of lime all across the top
