Gluten-Free Lettuce Wraps are a quick and delicious idea for a fresh main course or a filling afternoon snack. Get creative by adding or eliminating ingredients to fit your preference. Try it without the beans for a Paleo treat!

Another option is to heat the filling to enjoy it hot on the cold lettuce. If you can tolerate nuts, I also recommend adding some cashews for crunch!
