Spicy Beef Lettuce Wraps

Lately I have been really into lettuce wraps. Don’t judge the lettuce – these are damn good and take 15 minutes to make. The ground beef in these wraps is perfectly seasoned with moroccan inspired spices while the avocado adds a creamy bite that compliments the crunch of the lettuce. Weeknight dinner perfection.

1 lb ground beef
1 head butter lettuce or cabbage
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper


Any other toppings you like (guac, Sriracha, broken tortilla chips, sour cream, greek yogurt, diced tomatoes, etc.)
In a saucepan sauté ground beef until browned. Season with cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper and mix. Chop off the base of your head of lettuce just enough so that the leaves are easily detached. Fill individual leaves with a few scoops of ground beef and other toppings!
