Make This - Skinny Lettuce Wraps

(from my @lyndsylee instagram)
now that it is officially summer, i decided it was a good idea to lighten up our usual "casserole monday" with some absolutely delicious skinny lettuce wraps!
last night i took a chance and tried out this recipe from makeshift margaritas and let me just say the results were outstanding and a great success!  best part, they were so incredible easy to make! 
*1 lb. ground turkey or ground chicken
*2 tablespoons low-fat peanut butter (i used regular)
*3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
*2 tablespoons low sodium teriyaki sauce (i used trader joe's soyaki)
*1 can water chestnuts, drained
*1/2 chopped onion (i used the entire container of trader joe's onions, garlic & shallots pre-cut)
*1 head of lettuce washed & divided into large pieces for wrapping
*i added some freshly chopped mushrooms
1. Brown ground meat until fully cooked. Drain any fat.
2. Add peanut butter, soy sauce, teriyaki, onions,*mushrooms* and water chestnuts. Mix until combined. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes (i let it simmer for about 10-12 minutes).
3. Spoon meat into lettuce and wrap.
