How to make it
- Sauté beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat 5 to 10 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.
- Add mint, cilantro and next 4 ingredients to beef and stir until heated.
- Spoon mixture in center of cabbage or lettuce leaves, and roll up.
- Serve with additional lime wedges, if desired.
- If you decide to use cabbage leaves, blanching will make the leaves retain texture and color. To blanch, simply add cleaned leaves to boiling water. Let soak for less than 1 minute. Remove leaves and place directly in an ice water bath for 1 minute. Place on paper towels to allow for drainage and use when ready.
