Make

  1. Heat a large skillet or wok with cooking oil (portion for green beans) over medium-high heat. Add green beans and saute, letting the beans brown lightly on the bottom of the pan, until tender and lightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with ground coriander and some salt and pepper. Squeeze lime juice over top. Set aside and cover to keep warm.

  2. Wipe out pan and return to medium-high heat. Add oil (portion for turkey) and then turkey to heated oil. Saute turkey, breaking it apart, until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Add aminos, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and pepper. Stir until turkey is coated in spices, ~1 minute more.

  3. Fill lettuce leaves with turkey, avocados, pico de gallo, and pepitas. Enjoy with green beans on the side.
