20-Minute Mexican Lettuce Wraps Recipe: A Tasty Ground Beef Recipe

Who says lettuce wraps have to be Asian? This flavorful Mexican lettuce wraps recipe is loaded with seasoned ground beef, rice and whatever toppings you'd love to pile on. 

If you don't want to use rice, substitute black beans that have been rinsed and drained. So good! To save time, use a ready-made package of Spanish rice.
