Move over tortilla shells! Lettuce leaves make fresh cups to hold a delicious mixture of seasoned ground beef, corn and cheese.

Ingredients

Seasoned Ground Beef
1
cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa
1
cup frozen corn (from 1-lb bag)
1
cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (4 oz)
8
leaves Bibb lettuce
2
cups coarsely crushed tortilla chips (about 3 oz)
1/2
cup sour cream, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, mix seasoned ground beef, salsa and corn. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese.
  • 2 Spoon about 1/2 cup beef mixture into each lettuce leaf; place 2 on each individual plate. Top each lettuce cup with about 1 tablespoon remaining cheese, 1/4 cup crushed chips and 1 tablespoon sour cream.
Tips  

Instant finger food! These filled lettuce cups are fork-fare, but if your lettuce leaves are large enough, encourage the kids to wrap the lettuce around the filling and eat them with their hands.
