Taco Lettuce Wraps


Since I moved to Austin  from San Francisco several years ago, I’ve discovered that tacos are just a way of life here.  Pretty much every restaurant has a taco on the menu for some of the most interesting fusion dining concepts.  Asian food plus tacos?  Yep.  I could probably eat tacos for every meal and living in Austin makes it easy.  

Since we’ve been trying to dine out less, last week I just needed a taco.  A low-carb taco.  Sounds like an oxymoron, right?  There is such a thing, people, and they’re surprisingly delicious.  So here I’m going to give you a tasty, easy recipe to get your taco fix on a low-carb diet.

Taco Lettuce Wraps

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes


  • 1 pound grass-fed ground beef
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut aminos
  • 4 large butter lettuce leaves collard green leaves, or coconut flour wraps
  • 1/2 cup shredded grass-fed cheddar cheese for serving
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onions for serving
  • 1/2 cup guacamole for serving


  • On a skillet, heat the coconut oil on high and add the beef and cook for 5 minutes until fully slightly browned. Add coconut aminos and seasonings, and continue to cook the beef until cooked through. Transfer the beef to a serving bowl.
  • Serve the beef with the lettuce wraps, onion, guacamole, and shredded cheese.


You may also use a coconut flour tortilla in place of the butter lettuce.  Also try swapping out the cheddar for goat cheese or your other favorite type of cheese.
