Mexican Lettuce Wraps (Low Carb, clean eating, paleo, low fat, healthy)

  • 1 lb lean ground beef 
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey 
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 20 large iceberg lettuce leaves, whole, washed and dried (you could use romaine, or Bibb lettuce)
  • 1 cup reduced fat cheddar or monterey jack cheese, shredded (I used a mixture of both)
  • 1 cup fat free sour cream
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  1. In a large pan over medium heat add the ground beef. Cook until lightly browned. Drain if there's excess grease.
  2. Add the white part of the green onions to the pan and cook for 2 minutes. 
  3. Add onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, and chili powder, salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 5 minutes more.
  4. To assemble the wraps, top a lettuce leaf with taco meat, shredded cheese, avocado, sour cream, and the green tops of the green onions.
