Taco Tuesday is a serious event in our home – and has been since my boys were toddlers. They’re now in their late teens and look forward to our Tuesday night tradition. While the basics of my “magic meat” filling (as we have called it since the boys were in diapers) haven’t changed much – I opt for a healthier, organic seasoning mix and have replaced carb-heavy tortillas with romaine lettuce. These Turkey Taco Lettuce Cups are a quick and light way to enjoy taco night.

I also recently started using Cut Da Carb wraps as a tortilla alternative here and there – even my boys love them. They’re 9g of net carbs per wrap, so a little on the high side but not bad for an occasional alternative! And, if you want the crunch of a hard taco shell, try Folio’s as a shell for your keto tacos. Yum!
