My love of Mexican food has been taking a bit of a hit with the healthier eating that has been happening in our home. Some of my old favorites don’t match up to the healthier meals that I’ve been making. Luckily, all hope isn’t lost. There are ways that I’ve been able to work my favorite cuisine into our menu plans.
One meal that is proving to be a favorite in our house is these Mexican Beef Taco Lettuce Wraps. We’ve made Asian-style Lettuce Wraps several times, so it only made sense that a taco meat would be a great option for Mexican-style Lettuce Wraps.
The lean beef is paired with delicious additions like diced onions and colorful sweet peppers.
And I’ve even mixed up a homemade taco seasoning. If you usually use packaged taco seasoning, I strongly encourage you to give this a try. Not only is it’s easy to make, but it’s so good!
To eat the beef taco meat mixture, we use butter lettuce leaves instead of our usual fried taco shells. I like to buy my butter lettuce at Costco, but you can find it in the produce section of most grocery stores. Just separate the leaves from the head, wash and shake dry. They form the perfect little “cup” for holding your beef taco meat.
You can use butter lettuce as a tortilla substitute for all types of tacos. Here are some additional taco ideas:

Fish Tacos: Baked Tilapia Fish Tacos
Stretch your ground beef with potatoes: Beef & Potato Tacos
