Asian Lettuce Wraps with Skinny Sriracha Cream Sauce
Are you looking for a healthy recipe that is still full of flavor? I started substituting lettuce wraps instead of wraps with carbs a few months ago with Big Daddy was trying to lose weight. These wraps are a flavor explosion and they’re full of healthy ingredients so you can feel good about downing several of them!
I have loved Sriracha sauce since before it became wildly popular. I like spicy food and I like that CHA! by Texas Pete Sriracha sauce offers heat and flavor without calories making it perfect for this recipe. I chose to make a Skinny Sriracha Cream Sauce to top my lettuce cups, but a lot of the time I squeeze CHA! by Texas Pete straight on my food.
Texas Pete has a great reputation. These hot sauces have been a staple on southern tables for decades and have been gaining popularity nationwide and in many other countries. Do you like hot sauce? I put it on salads, baked potatoes and scrambled eggs. I find that I save a ton of calories by putting CHA! on these foods rather than the traditional toppings. These days I’m all about saving calories where I can. How else can I indulge on this?
Thanks to lean ground turkey and vegetables, these wraps are hearty enough for the guys.

This looks great! I love sriracha sauce, but didn’t know Texas Pete made one. I will have to keep my eye out for it!

Carol at Wild Goose Tea says
I love the seasoning and flavoring that you put in the meat. I am not familiar with the spice either, but I am going to trust your well rounded taste buds. The wraps using lettuce are wonderful by the way.
Thanks so much, Carol. I really enjoyed the flavors and my husband did too. He’s much pickier than I am too.
Love these lettuce wraps Paula! They look amazing and I’m totally drooling over that sriracha cream sauce! We are big fans of lots of heat so these Texas Pete’s hot sauces would definitely be a winner at our house 🙂
Carrie @Frugal Foodie Mama says
These look so delicious, Paula! 🙂 And I love the addition of a little heat. I still need to actually try srircaha sauce! I can’t believe that I still have tried it yet… I need to get on that. 😉
Peter @Feed Your Soul Too says
I had to see how you skinny’d down your sriracha sauce for this dish because my post tomorrow did the same thing. I like the addition of the rice wine vinegar. I will have to try that one.
Can’t wait to see what you did, Peter!
Lisa @ Cooking with Curls says
Those lettuce wraps look delicious Paula, but I am a wuss when it comes to spicy, LOL. I can’t handle anything hotter than mild!
You could do these with les sauce or none at all Lisa. I had not made lettuce wraps before and these were a hit even with my heavy eating husband.
