1 medium onion, diced
1 pound Lean Ground Beef or chicken
1/2 cup sweet peppers, diced (mini peppers or bell peppers)
taco seasoning (recipe below)
3-4 tablespoons water
Salt, to taste
1 head butter lettuce, leaves separated

½ tsp each cayenne pepper and garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
In a small bowl, mix together taco seasoning ingredients and set aside. In a large skillet, cook beef and onions together in a large skillet over medium heat until meat is browned and nearly fully cooked. Add peppers to meat mixture and continue to cook until meat is fully cooked and peppers are tender-crisp. Sprinkle meat mixture with approximately 2 teaspoons of taco seasoning (using less or more depending on personal tastes). Save remaining taco seasoning for another meal. Drizzle water over seasoning and stir to combine with meat. Season with salt to taste, if desired. Remove from meat when meat is hot and seasoned. To serve, place 2-3 butter lettuce leaves on a individual plates. Spoon some of mixture mixture into centers of leaves. Top with optional toppings, if you wish.
