Wow. An interesting month. This is one challenge shy of 3 dozen, we'll be entering the 4th year come April. Picking the host for the next one was not easy.   K Girl's cabbage rolls were an early favorite, as well as the lumpia.   @ChefHoff laid out quite a spread of entries, ravioli, gyros, enchiladas.

If it is baby lettuce the leaves may not be big enough to use as wrappers for a big hunk of Korean Bo S'sam [ or however you prefer to spell it ] as an entry in this month's challenge.   mjb.
The procedure described in the link @MillionsKnives posted looks promising.  It might work much better if one does not get distracted for too long at a crucial point.  
Sorry, all I know is that maseca is not what is used for arepas.   mjb.
