The world seems to have gone mad for carb-free food, so this recipe is inspired by you lot out there who like your tacos but don’t like your tortilla.
I constantly crave the flavours of Mexican cuisine, and this recipe ticks this box in a big way for me. Packed with flavour, it leaves you feeling rather angelic as it’s virtually devoid of any fat or carbohydrates.
Oh and lets not forget about the crunch factor. When you shroud your spicy chicken strips and salsa in a crispy lettuce leaf the whole thing becomes a texture adventure with a mingling of hot and cold, raw and cooked and is pretty much a perfect meal for me.
I have kept things fairly healthy here and excluded grated cheese and sour cream from the toppings. You can of course add this in to make it even more indulgent.
I have to say that I will be turning to lettuce to make my tacos in the future more often. I love how all the taste is there without the filling flour tortilla.
I enjoyed these spicy treats on a very hot day with some home made limeade. I simply squeezed fresh lime juice and measured this out. I then dissolved the same quantity of water and sugar as the lime juice together and then added this to the lime. I served this in glasses with loads of ice and topped up with soda water to the desired taste.
*if you are making very small quantities, you may find it easier to dissolve the sugar in the water by heating it first, then allowing it to cool before adding in the lime juice.
