“For those on a low-carb kick that love Mexican but dread all the beans and bread, try this alternative for taco night. It uses lettuce leaves instead of taco shells to make a dish that's halfway between a lettuce wrap and a taco. Low on carbs and still delicious!”

I used ground chicken instead of ground beef, red pepper instead of green pepper and homemade taco seasoning. To fill the meal out a bit, I served it with my Take-Out Fake-Out Mexican Rice and homemade refried beans. NO leftovers. We ate every bit of this until it was gone. Very economical meal to make.
