These super Fresh Southwestern Lettuce Wraps are packed with plant-based protein and amazing flavor! You can prepare them in a hurry and enjoy with the whole family!


  • 1 ½ tablespoon of vegan butter
  • ½ of a large red bell pepper, diced
  • ½ of a small red onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (15-ounce) can of corn, drained and rinsed
  • Juice of ½ to 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • ¼ cup of packed fresh minced cilantro
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 (15-ounce) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • Large lettuce leaves (romaine, butter lettuce, etc.)
  • Avocado slices, optional
  • Hot sauce, optional


  1. In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat the vegan butter. Once heated, add in the bell pepper and red onion and saute for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the veggies become tender.
  2. Add in the garlic and corn and saute for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  3. Stir in the lemon juice (start with ½ of the lemon and add more at the end if you’d like a more sour taste), chili powder, cilantro, salt, and black beans.
  4. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then serve over large leaves with avocado slices and hot sauce, if using.
