Mexican Lettuce Wrap

THIS super delicious dinner isn't just extremly tasty,
 its actually HEALTHY, can you believe it?...I know, I know....I should post
healthy things more often and I will try...I will try to do better this year (TRY, being the operative word).  THIS Mexican Lettuce Wrap is so GOOD that you sort of forget that your eating healthy. I loved that it was appealing to look at, tasty AND FILLING! You won't go away hungry from this one, no sir..eat one and YOUR STUFFED!!

Mexican Lettuce Wrap
1 lb ground LEAN BEEF or ground Turkey (either one will taste scrumptious, its just whatever your family
        likes)
1 small can diced chilies
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. season salt
1/4 t. ground pepper

Toppings:
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
Grated cheddar cheese (low fat cheese keeps this healthier)
low fat sour cream
diced avocado
diced tomatoes
1-2 heads lettuce (2 if you are feeding more than 4 people)

Place meat in a large frying pan, add seasonings and cook until ALMOST done. Add green chilies and cook until done. Drain meat. Cut lettuce in half lengthwise. Take out the center pieces of lettuce, keep them intact, set aside. Using pieces  that are "bowl" shaped, fill with meat, beans, corn, avocado's, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream etc....Eat up and ENJOY!

  1. How fun! Those sound awesome. I'm diabetic so cutting out the carbs from the tortillas would be perfect. Can't wait to try them!
