2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1 medium (1 cup) red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 (8-ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained, halved
8 ounces ground turkey

Teriyaki Sauce

2 tablespoons mirin
2 tablespoons soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger root*
8 butter lettuce leaves
1/2 cup wonton strips

Melt butter in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until sizzling. Add bell pepper strips and water chestnuts. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes or until peppers are crisply tender. Add turkey; cook 3-5 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink.
