As of late, I have been trying to choose healthier options when choosing a recipe and preparing meals for me and my family.  One of the things that I have done, is to cut back on the amount of bread and carbs that we consume.   So now when we have Taco Tuesdays, we omit the taco shells and instead opt for lettuce leaves.  This recipe is a hit with my family, and I am sure you will enjoy it too.
