Lettuce Tacos (Low-Carb)


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)

Taco filling:
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)
sour cream

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.
