These Chili Lime Steak Lettuce Wraps are a fun Mexican twist on this popular Chinese takeout item. They are fresh, flavorful and super simple to make with a homemade Tex-Mex seasoning!

The best part? They come together in less than 30 minutes so they’re perfect for busy weeknights. Lettuce wraps also make tasty appetizers at a party and they’re also a great option if you’re looking for more low carb options and are ketogenic friendly.

HOW DO YOU MAKE THESE CHILI LIME STEAK LETTUCE WRAPS

  • You’re going to start off by making the homemade fajita seasoning. It’s a blend of chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. Or if you already have a favorite brand of fajita seasoning, you can certainly use that instead.
  • Combine the olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, mustard and fajita seasonings for the steak marinade. Pour the marinade over the steak reserving 1 tablespoon for drizzling at the end.
  • While the steak is marinating you’re going to cut the onions and bell peppers into thin slices
  • Heat a large 12″ skillet over medium high heat and cook the onions until soft and fragrant, then add the bell peppers. If you like them with a nice crunch – cook for about 3-5 minutes. And if you like them softer, leave them on for about 3 minutes longer. Transfer and set aside on a plate.
  • Melt butter on the same skillet. Add the steak in a single layer. Allow to sear and cook for 1 to 3 minutes on each side (or more depending on how done you like your steak). Add the reserved steak marinade to the skillet and cook until just heated. Remove from heat.
  • Divide into lettuce wraps.

CAN I USE ANOTHER LETTUCE FOR THESE WRAPS?

Of course! I love using butter lettuce but romaine, or even collard greens would be delicious as well. Or you can even serve the chili lime steak filling over some cauliflower rice or zoodles.

These Chili Lime Steak Lettuce Wraps would make the perfect light lunch, dinner or even appetizers for your next spring, summer or Cinco de Mayo party.

Ingredients

For the Fajita Seasoning:

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper or to taste

For the Lettuce Wraps:

  • juice from 2 limes divided
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves chopped plus more for serving
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard paleo/keto brand as necessary OR Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound skirt or flank steak cut into 1" strips or cubes
  • 4 medium bell peppers seeded and thinly sliced I used red yellow, orange and green
  • 1 medium red onion thinly sliced
  • 1-2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 head butter lettuce leaves washed and dried
  • sliced avocado and lime wedges for serving

Instructions

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the fajita seasonings. Reserve 1 1/2 teaspoons for the bell peppers.

  2. Make the steak marinade:

  3. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, chopped cilantro, juice from 1 lime, mustard and 4-5 teaspoons of the fajita seasonings. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the steak marinade for drizzling on the steak at the end. Pour remainder of the steak marinade into a large zip-top bag along with the steak. Press the bag to evenly distribute the marinade and allow to sit while you prepare the vegetables.

  4. Slice the onions and bell peppers.

  5. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 12" skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions and allow to cook for about 5 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the bell peppers and sprinkle with the reserved 1 1/2 teaspoons of fajita seasonings. If you like the peppers with a nice crunch - cook for about 3-5 minutes. And if you like them softer, leave them on for about 3 minutes longer. Transfer and set aside on a plate.

  6. Melt butter on the same skillet and add the steak into a single layer. Allow to sear and cook for 1 to 3 minutes on each side (or more depending on how done you like your steak). Add the reserved steak marinade to the skillet and cook until just heated. Remove from heat.

  7. Assemble lettuce wraps by placing a spoonful of shrimp/vegetable filling into the center of each leaf. Top with avocado or your favorite toppings.
