Fiesta Frescada Lettuce Wraps and Bellafina Boats


Prep Time: 45 minsServings: 4
Using bell peppers and lettuce for wraps is a fun way to increase vegetables on the plate. Flavorful Bellafina® peppers and Frescada™ lettuce are perfect for a build-your-own Southwestern meal or as appetizers.


Slice Bellafina® peppers in half vertically. Arrange Frescada™ lettuce and 8 pepper halves on a serving platter. Cook brown rice according to package directions. To make salsa fresco, dice remaining pepper halves, tomato, and onion; mix with corn, garlic, and jalapeño pepper, and ¼ tsp salt. Sprinkle both sides of tilapia filets with Southwest chipotle seasoning. Heat 1½ T canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to pan, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Flake with a fork and place in a serving dish. When rice is done, stir in remaining ½ T oil, juice from one lime, and ¼ tsp salt. Cut remaining lime into wedges. To serve, set out pepper-lettuce platter, rice, fish, salsa fresca, sour cream, and lime, and let diners build their own boats and wraps.
