One of the many unfortunate things about Atkins is what you must give up up when it comes to Mexican food. Some of the key ingredients get lost because of the carbs they carry. Rice, beans, and my favorite the tortilla all have to be avoided in most cases and it feels like you begins to miss out on some of the best parts of the Mexican experience. But there are always ways to keep the flavor without messing up your routine and diet.
I went with the Spicy Chicken Taco. I added cheese and fresh salsas on top for some additional taste. It was wonderful. Although very similar to eating an Asian lettuce wrap but the taste was all Mexican and spice. The great thing about this is that its totally something you can do at home. next time you make chicken, steak, or carnitas tacos just sub out the tortilla for a fresh piece of lettuce. All the flavor and the carbs are not an issue.
P.s. Did I mention that Tacos are cheap. Real cheap.
