Delicious Soft Tacos for Taco Tuesdays with Fresh Pico


Taco on a low carb keto diet? You bet! I wouldn't go with out some good Mexican flavory tacos in my life.

🎵"If you like Cinco de Mayo, so you  c'n eat tacos all day. If you're not into carbs, and you have half a brain. If you like taking walks at midnight ..." 🎵 I know, in another life I was weird al with food lyrics haha.

There is no way I'm missing Taco Tuesdays just because I'm on a low carb keto diet. I love Mexican foods and flavors. Any taco can easily be converted to a low carb - keto taco by replacing the taco shell with your favorite lettuce. I used romaine hearts but a butter lettuce taco shell would be really good too.

Do you make tacos for Taco Tuesday? These turned out so good. You're going to love them and so will your family.
