Bright and fresh black bean and bell pepper lettuce wraps topped with a creamy cilantro lime sour cream sauce. Plan ahead and make the filling at least a couple hours in advance to give all the flavors a chance to combine.



For the Filling

  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 medium yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon cumin
  • Juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

For the Sour Cream Sauce

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon cilantro
  • Zest from 1/2 a lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 bibb lettuce leaves for serving


  1. Toss the first 11 ingredients all together in a medium-sized bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours (overnight is ideal) to allow the flavors to meld together.
  2. Before serving, make the sour cream sauce by mixing together the sour cream, lime juice, cilantro, zest, and salt.
  3. To serve, divide the filling equally across the bibb lettuce leaves. Drizzle the sour cream sauce over the top.
