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.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey I used 93% lean
  • 2 tablespoon green onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoon red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Asian Toasted Sesame salad dressing Asian Toasted or Sesame Ginger dressing
  • 1 medium lime zest and juice
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin like this
  • 3/4 cup corn
  • 3/4 cup edamame I use this
  • Lettuce leaves any variety of lettuce that you prefer
  • Garnish with green onion and red bell peppers

Sauce

Instructions

  • In a bowl, mix turkey, green onion, bell pepper, black pepper and salad dressing together Allow to sit 10 minutes.
  • Stir together all sauce ingredients and refrigerate.
  • Heat a saute pan to medium high. Add turkey mixture and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until turkey is not longer pick. Add hoisin and stir.
  • Remove meat from skillet and add corn and edamame. Cook through until hot. Cooking until a little charred wil add more flavor, I cooked until dark spots were visible without it being burned.
  • Mix turkey, corn and edamame together.
  • Spoon turkey mixture into lettuce leaves, top with green onion and red bell peppers, if desired. Squeeze lime juice and pour over turkey cups along with lime zest.
  • Drizzle sauce over all. Serve warm. Enjoy!

Notes

Hoisin is a thick sauce and glaze. Distinct in flavor from the Chinese five-spice, it’s sweet and salty and great on meat and in stir-fry.

  1. 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.

    1. Thanks so much, Carol. I really enjoyed the flavors and my husband did too. He’s much pickier than I am too.

  2. 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 🙂

  3. 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. 😉

  4. 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.

    1. 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.

  5. Flavor explosion?! That is just the way a lettuce wrap should be. I am going to have to keep my eyes open for some Cha! in the grocery store next time!
