I didn’t want to be left out of all the Cinco de Mayo celebrations, so I made some Mexican inspired lettuce wraps. The fresh salsa, “Market Fresh Chipotle Garlic Salsa” was from Wal-mart, & only $3. (& WAY yummy & ALL fresh stuff!) It’s only 5 calories per 2 tablespoons.  I’m not sure how to get it under 300 calories, unless you cut out the celery (20 calories per serving) but I really enjoyed the crunch! I also add an ungodly amount of Cayenne pepper, because I like it flaming hot. It also helps w/ my water intake, I drank 64 ounces of water while eating this. Oh, best part! I was STUFFED!
