In nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, stirring often, until softened, about 7 minutes. Add beef; cook, breaking up with spoon, until browned on the outside but not cooked through, about 2 minutes. Add garlic, chili powder, coriander, cumin and salt; cook, stirring, until beef is no longer pink, about 3 minutes.

Add corn, 2 tbsp of the sour cream and 2 tbsp water; cook, stirring, until corn is heated through and mixture is slightly saucy, about 2 minutes. Stir in half of the cilantro.

Spoon beef mixture over cut sides of pitas; top with tomato, lettuce and remaining sour cream and cilantro.
