Turkey Taco Lettuce Wrap
Bring rice and water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to maintain a low simmer, cover and cook until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 30 to 40 minutes (see Tip). Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.Advertisement
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add turkey, onion, pepper, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt and cayenne; cook, stirring, until the turkey is cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Add black beans and cook until heated thorough, about 2 minutes. Serve with the cooked rice, guacamole and sour cream in the lettuce leaves.
To have the most success cooking whole-grain rice, use a pan with a tight-fitting lid and cook on your coolest (or simmer) burner, making sure the rice is simmering at the lowest bubble. When preparing a recipe that calls for less than 1 cup of dry rice, like this, we found that rice is done quicker than when cooking a larger amount. So, when cooking a small batch of rice, start checking it after 30 minutes to make sure it doesn't burn.
