Yield:  4
Serving Size: 1 3/4 cups


  • 12 Bibb or Boston lettuce leaves
  • 2 1/2 cups drained canned beans, such as a black, pinto, and/or kidney beans
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, quartered lengthwise
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 3 scallions, green and white parts, very thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1/3 cup finely diced Monterey
  • Jack cheese or vegan cheese alternative (1 1/2 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
  • 1 Hass avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 2/3 cup medium or “hot” tomatillo salsa (salsa verde)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
  • 4 lime wedges

Preparation Without Meat

Divide the lettuce leaves among 4 dinner plates or pasta bowls, loosely forming a “bowl” with the leaves.

Stir together the beans, tomatoes, corn, scallions, cheese, cilantro, cumin, and chili powder in a medium bowl. Add the avocado, salsa, and salt (if using), and gently stir just to combine. Adjust seasoning.

Evenly divide the bean mixture among the 4 lettuce “bowls,” and serve with the lime wedges on the side.
