Latin Lettuce Wraps

Lighten Up with Latin Flavors

Latin Lettuce Wraps

A new year usually means serious business to most of us, but it’s a good idea to lighten up. These Latin Lettuce Wraps offer spicy flavor for snack time, as an appetizer, or to serve at mealtime. They’re full of protein, vitamins and minerals, and perhaps best of all — each has only 2 grams of fat. This recipe is so simple you’ll have these wrapped up in no time!
