Taco Lettuce Wraps

Pat Duran


The only thing missing from this recipe is the crunch- and I really love crunch. but this is so much fun and easy to eat- but, no turning your head sideways to eat and less fat and fewer calories.
I think you will love the ingredients in this mixture. Will be good in regular taco shells too!
