Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Change this recipe up by substituting the ground turkey for ground chicken or beef.
  • tip 2
    Lettuce cups are great for make-ahead lunches. After cooking the turkey-hoisin mixture, store it separately from the lettuce leaves in the refrigerator. Then when it’s time to eat, simply heat up the turkey mixture and assemble your lettuce wraps.
