Shell-Less Tacos

Shell-Less Tacos

These are a delicious alternative for your average, greasy, carb infested, processed tacos!

What you'll need:

Extra Lean Ground Beef
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 Yellow Bell Pepper (sliced)
1 Orange Bell Pepper (sliced)
1/2 c Cherry tomatoes (cut in halves)
Romaine Lettuce

Seasoning of your choice: I used Chili Powder, Garlic Salt, Paprika and Pepper

Avocado, Cilantro, Cheese, Salsa

In a pan, over medium heat, sautee the ground beef with the seasoning of your choice, add about 1-2 tablespoons of water so there is a small amount of juice made from the seasonings and the grease from the meat. stir occasionally, should cook in less than 10 minutes. In a separate pan, heat the 1 tbsp of Olive Oil and add sliced bell peppers, season to your liking and stir so that the peppers all have a nice thin olive oil coat. Cover and let cook for about 8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes so that the peppers do not burn.

Separate the Romaine Lettuce leaves so that they are able to hold the ingredients for your tacos. Fill each leaf with the amount of meat, veggies, cheese and other topics that you desire. I made sure to measure my ground beef out to 4.5 oz=3 PRO blocks for women. The peppers and lettuce were probably about 1 block of CHO, so serve with a small salad.
