Easy nut-free lettuce wraps. The perfect way to get dinner on the table in no time. 



1 lb ground pork 

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 small purple onion, diced

1 jalapeño pepper, seeds removed and sliced

2 cloves garlic, finely minced 

salt and pepper 

2 tbsp coconut aminos 

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes 


lettuce leaves

avocado slices 

salsa (if you’re on a Whole30 or the Keto diet, make sure there is no sugar added)

lime wedges 


To begin, Heat a large skillet over high heat and add the pork to the pan. Break up the pork and cook until it’s brown, about 3-5 minutes. 

Lower the heat to medium-high and add the bell pepper, onion, jalapeño pepper and garlic to the pan. Season with a few pinches of salt and pepper and continue to cook until the peppers are tender, about 5-7 minutes, stirring continuously. 
Now, add the coconut aminos and pepper flakes and toss to combine.

Allow the pork mixture to cool for a few minutes and serve inside of the lettuce leaves. Top with salsa and avocado slices.
