It's day two of Low-Carb week here at Curry and Comfort. Today I bring you Lettuce Tacos. I came across these baby romaine hearts at Costco and they make the perfect "taco" shape. I can literally eat an entire romaine heart in one sitting. I like to double up on the lettuce so I can really fill the center. Now any day can be low-carb taco night. Ole'!
Romaine lettuce (preferably small romaine hearts or Boston lettuce)
1lb Lean ground meat (beef, chicken, turkey)
salt and black pepper to taste
1/2 garlic powder
1-2 Tbs chili (for chili con carne) powder
1 tsp ground cumin
red chili flakes to taste
1 cup salsa
1 can drained and rinsed black beans
1 can drained and rinsed corn
1/4 cup water or chicken stock
shredded cheese (Mexican blend or cheddar)
Brown meat really well and season with some salt and black pepper. Then add all spices: garlic powder, chili powder, cumin powder, red chili flakes and cook for a minute. Finally add beans, corn, salsa and water and cook until water cooks out. Taste for seasoning. Serve with lettuce and garnishes. Enjoy.
