Such a great way to reduce the calories and carbs and still be able to enjoy this Mexican favorite! I find that reducing or elminating my carb intake in the evening truly makes such a difference in not only how I look, but also how I feel. If you crave carbs at night, making a switch to a low carb dinner entree can make such a difference. These tacos are a perfect way to EAT CLEAN! So YuM! Healthy, delish, quick and easy dinner!
