Asain Lettuce Cups

These were a HUGE hit at our house the other night.  They were easy to make, and even my hubbs loved them! I served them with a side of steamed sugar snap peas tossed with the tiniest bit of butter and salt. It was a fantastic meal!

1 lb Lean Ground Turkey
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1/8 tsp ground ginger
2/3 cup thinly sliced green onion (about 4)
1 8oz can Water Chestnuts

3 Tbsp Hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp lower sodium Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 tsp roasted red chili paste (I used hot chili sauce cause I had it on hand)
1/8 tsp salt

12 Boston Lettuce Leaves (I used Butter Lettuce)

Heat the vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the turkey, garlic and ginger to the pan.  Cook for about 6 minutes or until turkey is browned.  Add the water chesnuts and onions and mix well.
Whisk together the sauce ingredients and toss to coat with the turkey mixture.  Add about 1/4 cup turkey to each lettuce cup. 

Serving size 2 lettuce cups with 1/4 C mixture in each. (I actually used less mixture in each and had 3 or 4 cups instead of just 2)
