I was browsing Pinterest the other day, and came across a recipe for Turkey Taco Lettuce. Basically, instead of using a taco shell, or a tortilla, you use whole lettuce leaves to hold your taco toppings.

What a great idea for reduced calories! Plus, I never buy taco shells, and seldom buy tortillas, because they are pricey up here. Once in a while I get around to making homemade tortillas though, and that’s always a treat! Why did I never think of using lettuce leaves?

That same night, we have taco lettuce wraps! It was very yummy. 🙂

Carefully spread a leaf or two of lettuce, add whatever toppings you want, wrap and eat! Of course, it still makes a bit of a mess, it still ends up falling on the plate, but that happens even with tacho shells and tortillas! 🙂

Toppings I’ve used on tacos:
Ground Beef, seasoned with a homemade taco seasoning
Turkey pieces, seasoned with a homemade fajita seasoning
Beans, any kind works!
Lentils
Tomatoes
Cucumbers
Peppers
Mushrooms
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Salsa
Sour Cream
Thousand Island
Cheese

What toppings do you like on tacos/tortillas?
