Working from the comfort of my big-ass bed today, I got hungry. Really hungry - the kind where it feels like you forgot to eat breakfast. So I grab some jicima sticks and figure that will tide me over until I can run down the street and grab some pot stickers from the Chinese place. With the TV in the background showing a cooking show - the jicima wasn't working and since I was pretty much too lazy to put on real clothes to acquire said pot stickers - I went foraging in the kitchen and this is what I came up with:
I've always been a huge fan of Mexican food - especially tacos - the crunch of fried tortilla - either a taco shell, tostada or a chip is nirvana when paired with the correct ingredients. I've discovered in making this salad and the lettuce wrap tacos that lettuce is a fine substitute for a tortilla especially when watching carb intake.
