These Beef Lettuce Wraps are so quick to put together and taste like your regular beef tacos, with half the calories! Plus, the fresh tomato salsa really makes it special.

Beef Lettuce Wraps recipe

This new year, per usual, I made resolutions. Oddly enough, they are still alive and well and it’s the end of January. And it’s because I didn’t make impossible resolutions, but things that were realistic enough for my every day life. One of them was cutting out most carbs – because my carb addiction is quite strong and it’s the one thing I am drawn to on a daily basis.

First up, I tackled beef tacos because they are one of my favorite foods. But sometimes the amount of tortillas I can consume in a sitting is outrageous, so Beef Lettuce Wraps to the rescue. To really focus on cutting out the calories on this dish – and mind you, calories have never been a part of my train of thought, but it’s important to understand what’s going into your body, I replaced the sour cream with the brand new Stonyfield Double Cream Plain Yogurt. Thick. Rich. Delicious. Double Cream is the ultimate cooking yogurt! Great as a substitute for oil, mayo, buttermilk, butter or sour cream in your favorite recipes.

Another substitute was the taco seasoning package people tend to use when seasoning ground beef. Step away from the preservative-filled package and replace with some delicious Simply Organic seasonings. A blend of their adobo, smoked paprika, and cumin made the beef sing with flavor. The combination of those three spices have just become my favorite and I’m so happy Stonyfield partnered up with them – it’s a match made in Beef Lettuce Wrap heaven!
