today's special |  Ground Turkey in Lettuce Cups

The crisp, cool texture of iceberg lettuce nicely offsets the spicy meat mixture. This is a fun dish to eat with a small group of friends. Place the filling in a shallow bowl or plate, serve with a stack of large pieces of lettuce*, and let everyone assemble their own. Note: You'll want plenty of napkins on hand -- since you'll have to eat these with your hands, it gets a bit messy.

* Easiest method for getting large pieces of lettuce: Slice off the bottom of the lettuce head. The leaves should now peel apart easily.
