GATHER:

1 tsp olive oil

1/4 cup minced red bell peppers

1/4 cup minced scallions

12 oz leftover turkey breast, diced small

2/3 cup frozen corn

1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained

2 tbsp diced jarred jalapeno peppers

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese blend

8 large Iceburg lettuce leaves

12 tbsp Avocado Cilantro Ranch Dressing
MAKE:

*Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the red bell pepper and scallions to the pan and sauté for 2 minutes until tender.

*Add the diced turkey, corn, black beans, spinach, jalapeno peppers, cumin, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper to the pan. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, stirring well so the spinach gets mixed in with everything.

*Place about 1/3 cup of turkey mixture in the center of each lettuce leaf. Top each wrap with 2 tbsp cheese and 1 1/2 tbsp avocado sauce if desired.
