"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!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

green bell pepper, chopped
yellow onion, chopped
roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
1 (8 ounce) package
shredded Cheddar cheese
large romaine lettuce leaves
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.
I tried it tonight with ground turkey it was the bomb!!!!
This was soo good my kids (ages 6 and 10) asked me to make it next week! This is a first.
I used homemade taco seasoning with organic ground turkey. Even my kids loved it. I'm so happy to have found this recipe!
