Seasoned mince, tomatoes, cheese and peppers fill low-carb tacos wrapped in romaine lettuce instead of tortillas for a lighter Mexican option.
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. - 27 Apr 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It's really hard to rate a taco that uses a basic taco filling. I mean a taco is a taco. For creativity, I give it 5 stars. The shape of the romaine leaf, along with its sturdiness makes a perfect substitute for the carb watchers that don't want a tortilla shell. I'm not sure why the peppers and onions are sauteed and served as a topping other than to please a picky eater. I'd much rather save a step and cook them in with the meat. - 12 May 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
