QUICK & EASY meal for dinner tonight? Check. ✔️ This is a meal you can eat that you don’t feel incredibly guilty for eating, and it tastes amazing. There is something great about knowing exactly what is in the food that you’re eating. If you look at the back of taco seasoning packets, you’ll notice there are not many recognizable ingredients. Shout out to my sister for ruining that one for me. Either way, it’s a scary thought.. Lucky for you, I have a homemade taco seasoning recipe for these YUMMY lettuce wraps. I never thought I would like them because I am a carb-lover to the fullest. With these, I swear you won’t even miss the tortillas. Vegetarian? Substitute meat-free Morningstar brand. Also delicious.

Ingredients:

1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Black pepper
1/4 tsp curry Powder
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/4 Dried oregano (optional)
1 1/2 Cumin (optional)
Romain lettuce, leaves
1 pound ground beef OR ground turkey

Directions:
1. Cook the ground beef in a skillet until brown and crumbly, stirring occasionally. Stir in all dry ingredients. Cook until beef is no longer pink.
2. Cut up 1 avocado into slices and set aside in a bowl.
3. Serve with 3-cheese Mexican blend shredded cheese, light sour cream, and salsa. Add Sriracha for a little extra spice.
