Beef Lettuce Tacos
For The Beef
1/2 Small Onion, chopped fine
2 lbs Lean Ground Beef (we use 90/10)
Homemade Taco Seasoning (See above)
In a large sautee pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium high heat. Add in chopped onion and sautee until translucent & fragrant. Top with ground beef & break apart into smaller pieces with a spatula. Season the ground beef & onions generously with taco seasoning and cook to desired doneness stirring occasionally.
For The Salsa
Red Bell Pepper
Salt & Pepper
This salsa can be made quick while your ground beef is cooking or you can easily make it ahead of time and let the flavors intensify in the fridge! I didn’t put amounts for all the ingredients because I think that everyone likes their salsa differently. I like lots of tomatoes and less red onion, my mom likes barely any red onion and lots of red bell pepper, and my dad digs the mango and could do without the tomatoes altogether. There’s really no wrong way to salsa! Just chop up all your ingredients small (I like to do cherry tomatoes in quarters, small dice on the mango, and really fine chop on the onion and bell pepper). No matter what your ratio, don’t go too heavy on the red onion unless you don’t mind warding off other humans all night with onion breath ;) Put it all in a bowl, squeeze in lime juice, stir, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
For The Avocado Sauce
2 Ripe Avocados
Salt & Pepper
To make your avocado sauce peel and pit your avocados and blend with enough lime juice to make your avocado sauce a smooth and fluid consistency. I used an immersion blender and did mine right in the bowl I was serving in. This would also be good just smashed with a fork if you like your avocado chunky! Season with salt & pepper to taste. If you really want to get crazy you can blend in some pineapple for a splash of sweet!
For The Tacos
Tear off the pieces of your butter lettuce so you have your own mini taco shells. Fill with ground beef and top with salsa, sauce, and a few sliced radishes. We served ours with some coconut rice and we ate until there was nothing left :D
