MMM Monday! Taco Lettuce Wraps













Taco Lettuce Wraps


I am constantly on the hunt for new ways to create old favorites.  Trying to eat more wholesome, organic foods is high on my priority list these days.
A great, low-carb alternative to your traditional taco, these lettuce wraps are easy and delicious and a treat your whole family will love to make and eat.

Ingredients
1 Pound Organic Grass Fed Ground Beef
1 Head Organic Lettuce, washed and leaves removed whole
2 - 3 Organic Tomatoes, chopped
1 Medium Organic Onion, chopped
2 Cups Organic Shredded Mexican Cheese
1 Cup Organic Sour Cream
1 Cup Organic Salsa
1 Packet Organic Taco Seasoning
2 Tablespoons Juice from Jalapeno Jar
1 Can (12 oz.) Organic Black Beans (optional)
1 Jar Organic Large Pitted Black Olives (optional)
1 Can (4 oz.) Organic Diced Chile Peppers, do not drain
Organic Cooking spray

Directions

  • Spray  medium skillet lightly with cooking spray, heat to medium-high and add beef
  • Cook until just brown, pour jalapeno juice over meat; simmer for 1-2 minutes
  • Add diced chile peppers; continue simmering for 3-5 minutes
  • Add taco seasoning packet to meat (no need to add additional water as juice from the chile peppers and the jalapeno juice adequately blend with seasonings)

  • While meat is cooking, heat beans in a small saucepan
  • Cut head of lettuce in half and remove leaves in whole pieces
  • Drain beans and meat
