  1. As a gluten free gal who likes her food tasty, as well as healthy, I think this is a great recipe. Thanks for the tasty pictures. I'm going shopping!

  2. This taco idea is so great. It's light and easy and healthy.
    I love grilled onions and that pushes me over the top in this recipe.
    This is going on the menu in our casa next week. I just need to buy a Poblano chili. Happily I've got my Live Gourmet Butter Lettuce and the rest of the ingredients.
    I'd like to see more topping ideas for this taco style meal.
