Taco night just got a whole lot healthier thanks to the recipe below! With these tacos, there's no tortilla or shell in sight. Instead, crisp romaine lettuce envelops seasoned grilled chicken, avocado, tomato, and onion. A drizzle of lime and a sprinkling of cilantro, and these tacos are ready to enjoy!
As written, the recipe below boasts no dairy at all. But if lactose isn't an issue for your family, you can keep them low-carb and punch up the flavor with a sprinkling of grated cheddar cheese or a dollop of sour cream. Either one will be a welcome addition to the already flavorful tacos.
