Obviously you can use any kind of meat here but I love taco seasoned beef because you really don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything.

Butter lettuce with vary in size but I had some pretty big leaves for my taco lettuce wraps.

  2. I love tacos wrapped in lettuce! I’ve been doing this for more than 30 years, since I made a homemade version of a Vietnamese dish (similar to tacos) that called for lettuce! While the kids had taco shells, I had lettuce wraps. I’ve also used mayo instead of sour cream…just a little bit of a different taste. Love your site, too!

  3. You can make it even healthier by using low sodium taco seasoning. Better for your heart and blood pressure and you don’t miss the extra salt because of all the other flavors!
