Who doesn’t love Mexican food? Cheese dip, guacamole, salsa and margaritas! I could eat mexican food probably everyday of the week if I could. Giving up the tortilla on my usual taco was not something I wanted to do! I usually eat my hamburgers without a bun and make it into a lettuce wrap and of course P.F chang’s lettuce wraps are TDF.. So why not tacos? I love this recipe because I can eat WAY more for just a few calories. I don’t know about you but I’m down for food 🙂
1.5lbs lean ground turkey or beef
1 small onion
4oz of medium salsa
1 Tsp cumin
1 Tsp chili powder
1 Tsp garlic powder
1 Tsp paprika
1/2 Tsp oregano- if you don’t have it don’t worry
(I sometimes sprinkle some cayenne In it for added spice)
3/4 cup of water
8 large lettuce leaves

Place taco mixture in center of lettuce wrap and top with your favorite taco toppings!
