Taco lettuce wraps are great for a DIY party or buffet table, too!

Best Lettuce For Lettuce Wraps

We chose Iceberg lettuce for our wraps, but Bibb and Romaine work just as well. Make sure the leaves are clean and intact and wide enough for a good wrap!

  1. Brown beef, onion, and garlic, until no pink remains. Drain fat.

  3. Cool slightly before scooping into lettuce leaves.

What to Serve with Lettuce Wraps

Tex-Mex night means delicious sides to go with taco lettuce wraps! Here are a few tasty sides! Low carb coleslaw, cherry tomato salad and a side of tasty keto zucchini fries.

Recipe Tips

  • Low carb and keto are all about using full fat flavored foods, so choose ground beef that is at least 85/15%. Be sure to drain it after cooking, however.
  • Making a few batches of the seasoned ground beef mixture and several airtight containers of mix-ins can get lunch or dinner on the table as quickly as it takes to reheat the meat! Taco lettuce wraps are a great school or workday lunch!
