Healthy Buffalo

Okay, I'll admit it. As cliche as this sounds... I am a sucker for Buffalo Wings. Especially the messy ones just slathered in sauce. Mmm, the messier the better. And, honestly? When I think no one is watching, I even lick the leftover sauce from my fingertips. Yup, can't help it. 

However, we are currently on a Slim-Down mission in this household. So I was thrilled to stumbled upon a Buffalo skinny-recipe. And this one earned an "unbelievable" on the Husband Scale. 

Buffalo Turkey Wraps

1 pound lean ground turkey
1/2 cup onion, diced finely
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3/4 cup carrot, diced finely
1 cup celery, sliced thinly
1 head iceberg lettuce, leaves removed to form cups
salt and pepper  
1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot Buffalo wing sauce 
Blue cheese crumbles or 
Blue Cheese  or Ranch dressing to drizzle over the top

*Frank's sauce does tend to be on the spicy side, so I started with 1/4 Cup and worked my way up to what we could handle.

1. In a large skillet, saute the onions over medium heat until soft. Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add ground turkey, season with a dash of salt and pepper, brown meat and cook until cooked through. Drain any grease if necessary.

2. Return meat to pan and stir in the wing sauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer for a couple of minutes.

3. Prepare lettuce cups. Place spoonful of meat into lettuce cup, top carrot and chopped celery.  Sprinkle with some blue cheese crumbles and/or dressing. Wrap up and start eating!

Yum! Served this with Sweet Potato Oven Fries and some greens.
