I love lettuce wraps. I often order the Asian version at a restaurant that offers them. I decided to try a Mexican version of them, and they came out really good. They are like a taco without the taco shell. They are a quick and fresh dinner that the whole family will like… and if the kids prefer theirs with a taco shell… well, just put the taco shells out and they can make them up their way. These are Trim Healthy Mama Compliant as an S meal.
