These easy keto spicy beef lettuce wraps are perfect for a fast weeknight dinner!

Lettuce wraps have been around for a long time and very popular for those on a low carb and/or keto diet. You can truly wrap so many meats up with lettuce and enjoy it as well as the feeling of grasping something low in carbs that isn’t bread. You can use lettuce wraps in place of buns for burgers, in place of tortillas for tacos, and even for burritos! When it comes to choosing lettuce, a hearty, strong leaf works best, like Romaine or Butter lettuce which has some flexibility for rolling up. 

Large Frying Pan– A large frying pan comes in handy every day in my house. I use it for cooking up ground beef weekly, hamburgers, salmon, chicken parmesan, and so many more recipe. 

Mason Jars– These are great for storing my slow cooker granola, or coffee beans or nuts but for this recipe it’s for easily mixing salad dressing!
