  • 2 cups coarsely crushed tortilla chips (about 3 oz)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, if desired

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Instant finger food! These filled lettuce cups are fork-fare, but if your lettuce leaves are large enough, encourage the kids to wrap the lettuce around the filling and eat them with their hands.
