ground turkey thai peanut lettuce wraps

1lb of ground turkey, cooked in a stove top pan
diced carrot, as much or as little or none - as you'd like
1/2 an onion diced
frank's sweet thai chili sauce (i didn't measure; just enough to coat the meat. i'm really glad i dont food blog full time)
3-4 tablespoons of soy sauce
1.5 scoops of peanut butter
3 garlic cloves
1 large head of lettuce leaves

start my browning the ground turkey. when cooked through, add the onion, carrot, garlic. cook for about 5-6 minutes on medium heat and add the thai chili sauce & soy sauce. cook for 4-5 more minutes on a slightly lower heat until the flavors blend. add in the peanut butter until melted; around 3-4 minutes. like everything simmer on a low temp for about 2-3 more minutes. 

spread the mixture on the large lettuce leaves; removing the coarse bottoms. wrap and boom; your have a happy man on your hands.
