Lettuce-Wrapped Beef Tacos
(Served the 2 of us with plenty to spare)
- 1 lb Ground Beef
- 1/2 Green Bell Pepper, Diced
- 1/4 Onion, Diced
- 1/2 Cup Water
- Taco Seasoning (see recipe below)
- Iceberg Lettuce OR Cabbage (Pull off Large Leaves)
- Homemade Salsa
- Avocado Slices
- 1 T Chili Powder
- 1 T Onion Powder
- 1 T Garlic Powder
- 1 T Cumin
- 1/4 T Cayenne Pepper (more or less depending on your spice preference)
Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Brown the ground beef along with the green peppers and onions until all are cooked through. Drain off any excess grease if necessary. Lower heat to medium-low and add water and taco seasoning. Stir until combined. Let simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
To serve, take a large lettuce leaf "wrap" and fill it with some of the meat mixture. Top with salsa and avocado slices. Wrap it up and enjoy!
*UPDATE 4/6: I made these again last week, but used cabbage leaves instead, and I DEFINITELY preferred the cabbage! I pulled off some big leaves and let them soften one at a time in a pot of boiling water for about a minute each, and they were perfect. They were a lot sturdier than lettuce, and had much better texture. Plus, they have more nutritional value than iceberg lettuce. I would recommend you use cabbage for sure!
