These simple yet delicious lettuce cups are loaded with spiced chilli beef and topped with a sprinkling of tangy cheddar cheese.

These are a great lunch served hot, or you could prepare the beef in advance and add cold to lunch box salads.

        It would be very helpful in ground beef recipes if recipe writers would provide the lean/fat ratio of the beef. Or is it the case (hardly imaginable!) that the macros are not any different for, say, 80/20 beef vs 90/10? Thank you 😊

            As far as I know you shouldn’t heat olive oil very hot ...

              EVOO shouldn't be heated to smoking. Regular olive oil, or a combination oil like Avocado/olive can be heated.

                What percentage of fat for the ground beef?

                  How many lettuce cups are considered as a serving? This recipe sounds good. Wanting to try it. Can you also salt the lettuce before you put the filling in it?

                    Hi, that is correct - the recipe serves 2 leaves per person. Yes you can salt the lettuce if you wished to. Hope this helps.

                    I would say 2. The recipe calls for a total of 4 leaves and there are 2 servings. (Not sure about the salt, though.)

                    You could use the beef topping on a salad
