Introduction

(NOTICE THIS IS A LOW CALORIE TACO!) I made this recipe because i don't eat red meat anymore, and when I did my favorite food was tacos. My taco habit was crazy! I have been getting a bad craving so I had to come up with something to fix my taco fix. These lime chicken tacos are LOW CAL, HIGH PROTIEN, AND its all natural! For the taco shell you use lettuce leaves, instead of a tortilla so you wont feel guilty about having two 141 Calories Each Lime Chicken Tacos!I choose not to make sides because 1 taco + 1 tall glass of water fills me up! :) But feel free to add what you like!
