Low-Carb Tacos!! If you’re a fan of tacos but don’t are watching you’re weight or carbs, then you’re going to fall in love with these taco lettuce wraps. They’re a great option if you’re on a low-carb, paleo or keto diet. The tortilla is replaced with lettuce and filled with chicken and all your favorite taco fillings.

The chicken is marinated in a spicy homemade taco seasoning and grilled (or pan-fried) to perfection. While the chicken is cooking, blend together the cilantro sauce. It takes just 1 minute in the blender and makes a DELICIOUS zesty topping for the tacos!
To Cook Chicken
Add the chicken, garlic, olive oil, and spices in a large bowl or zip-seal bag. Place in fridge and let marinate for at least 15-30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade. Place chicken on a grill or pan heated to medium-high heat. Let chicken cook until it is no longer pink on the inside, about 9-10 minutes per side (or until it has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F).
To Make Cilantro Sauce
Place all the ingredients in the food processor and blend for 1 minute or until creamy.
Layer lettuce wraps with chicken, tomatoes, onion, and avocado. Drizzle with cilantro sauce or your favorite taco sauce.
