Steak Fajita Lettuce Wraps (That Happen to Look Like Ducks…)

January 11-14 041

After I took this picture, I realized all the assembled pieces looked like a duck. I thought it made this dinner cuter so I left it (even though dinner isn’t cute. oh well).

Anyway, this dinner is simple, simple, simple and completely customization which is my favorite part. Put what you want in your lettuce wrap–try new things if you want, or don’t. It’s all up to you!

You Need:

1 package stir-fry steak (can also be made with ground beef, ground turkey, chicken, anything really!)

1/2 red bell pepper, sliced thin

1/2 small white onion, sliced

1 green spicy pepper

Olive Oil, pepper, chili powder

1 head iceberg lettuce

All the following are the toppings I used but feel free to choose your own:

Shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 ripe avocado

Black olives

Sour cream

1/2 tomato

In a skillet, heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil over high heat. Add peppers and onions and stir fry for approximately 2 minutes.

Add meat of choice, sprinkle with pepper and chili powder, and mix. Cook over high heat for around 3 minutes, flipping meat to cook thoroughly.

Reduce heat to medium and allow the stir-fry to cook for another 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, prepare your lettuce by taking off the top layer of leaves then, carefully take each leaf off the head. Cutting off the bottom of the head of lettuce will make this easier.

Rinse lettuce leaves and pat dry with paper towels.

Assemble toppings of choice while it cooks also.

When the meat is cooked through (steak and beef–your choice of pink. Turkey, no pink), remove from heat. Place a small fork-full of the filling into the middle of a piece of lettuce. Top with desired add-ins, fold over (or don’t like I do) and eat!
