This Chorizo and Black Bean Lettuce Wrap recipe falls into the SUPER easy category for sure. It takes no time at all to slice and pickle the onions and peppers then sauté the sausage and black beans on the stove. Serve with the lettuce cups, cheese, and sour cream, and voila … dinner is done!
How Else Can I Enjoy This Recipe?
While I used lettuce wraps to hold the chorizo and black bean filling, you could use homemade tortillas instead. This would also be yummy as a mixed salad.
Side Dish Recommendations for Lettuce wraps
I did throw some sweet potato “fries” into the oven for 20 minutes before I got started, and everything was ready at exactly the same time. You can also serve it with some Mexican Street Corn (or my salad version), roasted veggies, or some fresh fruit.
How to Use Leftovers
If you happen to have any of this dinner leftover, then I recommend turning it into an epic Huevos Rancheros breakfast the next day, yum! :) You can also mix things up a little bit and enjoy it over some whole-grain rice.

What kind of chorizo do you like to use? Thanks!
As far as meat goes, try sticking with locally raised from a butcher or from a local farmer’s market. – Nicole
