Lettuce Tacos

We are a huge fan of Lettuce Wraps at PF Changs. I mean, come on, who doesn't like Lettuce Wraps. They are delicious. They are fun. You scoop the meat (however much you want) into a crisp piece of lettuce. You add sauce (I don't) and roll them up and ENJOY!

This gave me an idea... Lettuce Tacos. Just like the Lettuce Hamburger another "normal" American dinner turned Paleo. We replace the Taco shell with lettuce. Everyone enjoyed these!

 This is an instant favorite. There are so many possibilities with tacos. Looking forward to making different variates!

The Ingredients:
1 - 2 lbs ground beef
1 carrot, diced small
1/2 can water chestnuts
1 onion, chopped
Garlic Powder
Chili Powder
Salsa, optional

The Directions:
Brown the ground beef and onions. Add seasoning when meat is just about done. Drain. Add carrots and water chestnuts into the ground beef and heat.
Wash lettuce. Keep in big, bowl pieces.
Top with tomatoes, avocado, lime juice or salsa.
