Crunchy Buffalo Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Hey y’all! Football season will be here very soon which means tailgates, parties and tasty food! Add this super easy recipe to the appetizer menu. It’s a great way to get in veggies and still get that delicious Buffalo flavor that we all love. And the best part is that it only takes 15 minutes to make!

I added celery and carrots because every time I eat buffalo wings, it always comes with celery and carrot sticks. I was really going for the full effect here. You can always use shredded chicken here which would be perfect! Another option is to throw everything in a bowl and eat it as a salad. That works too. Any type of lettuce can be used here so choose your favorite.

The good in this? Since this is basically a salad….all of the veggies provide fiber which aid in digestion and helps keep our gut bacteria in check.

Enjoy!
