Introduction

I saw this recipe made on The Biggest Losers. I didn't have any ground turkey on hand, so I used lean ground beef. This is double the origianl recipe. Makes great leftovers for lunch.

    Delish! Some of the kids ate them with tortillas, I used romaine hearts; overall pretty good. I understand the recipe to be 1/4 cup filling per serving. - 5/3/11

  • My whole family of four loved this. I halved the recipe and used carrots instead of water chestnuts. I skipped the almonds as I didn't have any. I'm sure almonds would only make it better. I bought one head of bibb lettuce and it was not enough. I will definitely make this again! - 7/27/16

  • I just want to say that I love this recipe and make it quite often. The only substitution that I make is ground turkey instead of ground ground beef. Warning is it's a little messy and addictive. - 9/21/13

  • These were wonderful! I made them exactly to the recipe, but I did add a couple more veggies--zucchini and shredded carrots as a topper. We served them in butter lettuce leaves, and I offered rice on the side as well. I will be making this over and over! New favorite!! - 7/27/12
