“Very fun, very fast dinner. Can make the leftovers into a taco salad to take for lunch the next day.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop onion, seed jalepeno and chop 1/4 of it very finely, slice or dice the rest and set aside for a taco topping later.
  2. In a frying pan brown meat with onion and as much of the finely chopped jalepeno as you'd like (i normally only use a pinch or two).
  3. Drain meat, return to frying pan and mix in 1/2 packet of taco seasoning (if you're watching carbs or sugar, if not, use the whole thing) simmer on low heat.
  4. cut tomato, avocado, carefully peel lettuce leaves apart and clean them.
  5. arrange tomato, avocado, jalepeno and lettuce leaves on a plate, throw a spoon in the corn, meat, cheese, sour cream and salsa and have everyone assemble tacos in the lettuce instead of taco shells.
  6. IF you have leftovers make a salad and take it to work for lunch :).
