Lettuce wraps 2 Viva la Mexico! (don't drop dead of a heart attack before you're 50)

You can use lettuce wraps for taco shells as well!  Taco meat is easily frozen and well, cheee, tomatoes, etc. can be prepared very quickly for tacos.  I like queso fresco which can be purchased now in most mega marts.  It's a non meltable mozzarella type crumbly mexican cheese that is great for tacos.

2 lbs lean ground beef
3 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground mustard

2 cups crumbled queso fresco
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
1/8 cup chopped cilantro
salsa or hot sauce of your choice (preferably the world's greatest salsa-earlier post.)
10 large iceberg lettuce leaves for wrapping

In a saute pan, brown your meat, drain, and set aside.  Toss together with all the spices.  Make tacos inside the lettuce cups and enjoy.
