Surf and Turf Lettuce Tacos

Pin It

I love lettuce tacos ‘cause you can fill them with whatever you have on hand. You meal can be as complicated or simple as you damn well please. Plus, you get to eat with your hands AND you don’t have to wash any utensils. I hate doing the dishes.

Don’t get caught up trying to gather the exact ingredients I used. Just fill your lettuce cup with whatever you’ve got in your fridge. I do insist that you make Fitbomb’s awesome guacamole as a topper – that’s non-negotiable.

…and guacamole. 

When I was finished, everone piled on their own toppings and dinner was served!
