We’ve shared Greek and Asian versions of the lettuce wrap in previous posts…now let’s head South-of-the-Border for a little at-home fiesta! From the Taylor House, this recipe actually happened quite by accident. A taco night without taco shells isn’t always a bust…a belle can always make-do in a pinch…just sayin’.

The Taylor House Taco Lettuce Wrap


– 1 pound ground beef
– 1 package taco seasoning ( a little trick …if you add a small can of tomato paste when you add seasoning it will take the meat to a whole ‘nother level…word)
– 3/4 cup water
– shredded cheese
– chopped tomatoes
– chopped onions
– sour cream
– cilantro
– avocado slices and /or guacamole
– salsa
– “little gems” romaine leaves

Brown the ground beef. Add taco seasoning and water (and tomato paste…if you’re smart and want your taste buds to dance…just sayin’ ) Simmer for 5 minutes. Chop onions, tomatoes, cilantro…and slice the avocado or make your guacamole.

Now…set up a taco bar for some do-it-yourself action, and enjoy!

Now THAT’S how to wrap up a fiesta, belles!
