Expert Tips

Guajillo chile can be found in the spice aisle of your grocery store. You can substitute it for ground ancho chile or ground chipotle.

A healthy alternative to the traditional tortilla, lettuce wraps burst with freshness and flavor. These guajillo Asian beef lettuce wraps are ideal for entertaining or for a family-style meal. No utensils required, kid-friendly, and do-it-yourself assembly! A flavorful balance of sweet (orange juice and honey) and heat (guajillo chile), these wraps are almost too pretty to eat.

Directions

  • 1 Gently rinse lettuce leaves and pat dry, careful not to tear them. Set aside.
  • 2 In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over high heat. Add red onion and garlic and cook for 3 minutes.
  • 3 Add ground beef and cook 5 minutes, breaking up with a spoon.
  • 4 Drain grease and return pan to stovetop; reduce heat to medium. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 5 Stir in orange juice, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil and ground guajillo chile.
  • 6 Cook until sauce has thickened, 3-4 minutes. Spoon beef mixture into lettuce leaves, add carrots and cucumber, and place on a large serving platter. Serve with lime wedges.
