In one skillet, sauté the corn, black beans and red onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil 5-7 minutes on medium heat; season with salt & pepper, In a second skillet, heat a little extra virgin olive oil; brown the ground pork 8-10 minutes on medium heat until cooked through; adding the spices as it cooks.
Cut the iceburg lettuce into wedges (as many as you need tonight – reserve the remaining iceburg lettuce for another day). Gently rinse the lettuce wedges and pat dry. Remove the upper portion of each wedge. Fill each wedge with some seasoned cooked pork, and top with corn-black bean mixture, diced tomatoes & red onion, cilantro, Cotija cheese and squeeze with some lime.
Drizzle on some Creamy Avocado Poblano dressing and serve.
