Fajita Lettuce Boats

Hey everyone! Happy Monday!

I just wanted to quickly share with you a recipe I created for low calorie fajitas that don't lose any of the flavor!!! Totally delish and filling! I'm on a very strict calories diet and wanted Fajitas for dinner one night. But looking at the packaging, I noticed that the wraps themselves were over 250 calories for 1 serving! YIKERS, I didn't have that many calories left if I wanted to have a bag of popcorn later {priorities I tell ya! LOL} what I did was substituted Romaine Lettuce for my Tortilla Wraps. I went from 250 calories to 15 calories! Seriously delish!!!

Hope you enjoy!!!

Fajita Lettuce Wraps
Beef Marinade:

3 Tlb Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tlb Worcestershire Sauce
3 Tlb Soy Sauce
2 Tlb Spicy Brown Mustard


15 oz. Beef Round Steak, Marinated
1 Bag 10 Minute Rice
1 Head Romaine Lettuce, Peal off the Leaves for boats
1 Red Pepper, Sliced
1 Green Pepper, Sliced
1 Red Onion, Sliced {Or onion of your choice}
1 Lime, Wedged
2 Tlb Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1. Mix vinegar,
Worcestershire, soy sauce & mustard all together. Cut steak into thin strips and marinade in sauce for 1 hour in refrigerator.

2. Prepare vegetables, set aside, boil rice.

3. Heat oil over medium heat, add steak and cook 1 minute on each side, remove from pan. Add vegetables to the pan and cook until just wilted. Remove from pan.

4. Remove bag of rice from pot, drain and poor into bowl.

5. Add rice, steak and vegetable
