These raw food diet lettuce wraps have a hint of Mexican spiciness to them, hence the "burrito" simile. These wraps make a great entree for a raw food meal or a raw food potluck, and, because they're so easy and tasty, they're a great raw transitional food too. They're naturally gluten-free, of course. 


  • 2 very ripe avocados
  • 3 tomatoes (diced)
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper (diced)
  • 2 tbsp. yellow onion (diced)
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 3/4 cup corn (kernels from one ear raw corn)
  • 2 tsp. fresh lime juice
  • 6 to 8 large lettuce leaves

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients. 

  2. In a medium sized bowl, mash the avocado.
