Although I am not a fan of "fake meat," my husband loves it. Despite the debate about the nutritional benefits of Beyond Meat vs. Impossible Meat, I prefer Bocca Original Crumbles. What's the difference? Bocca Orignal Crumbles are only 60 calories and completely fat-free. Conversely, Beyond Meat is 270 calories with 20 grams of fat.Need I say more? Although the word skinny and taco are generally not used in the same sentence, these are the closest to fat free as it gets.
When making Skinny Taco Lettuce Cups, Bocca Crumbles are always my first choice. In fact, I use Bocca Crumbles for chili, soups, tacos, and anything requiring a "textured meat." Not only is it easy to prepare, Bocca Crumbles are available in the freezer section, and literally take 10 minutes to prepare.
As far as toppings go, the choice is up to you. For instance, I chose black beans, Simple Rosemary Infused Pickled Red Onions, Chipotle Cashew Cream, and store bought salsa. In my opinion, bib or butter lettuce makes the best lettuce cups or wraps. If like me, I try to avoid bread as much as possible, and these lettuce cups are the prefect dinner or lunch.
If you are looking for a quick and easy dinner, with little prep time, try Taco Lettuce Cups. You won't be disappointed.
