Use low fat whole wheat tortillas to eliminate calories. Instead of frying the tortillas in oil I bake them in the oven. If you want to make your own salsa, you can make it the day before and it will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days. Although store-bought salsa and guac are also perfectly good. I am showing you a blueprint, but you could substitute grilled beef, shrimp, or turkey. Lemon Dressing:
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt Bean Salsa:
