The secret to these tacos is in the fresh salsa. The calorie count can vary depending on the tortillas you choose. The brand I use have only 25 calories per tortilla, the recipe analyzer shows 50 calories per tortilla...when you deduct those 25 cals these tacos are just over 100 cals a piece!!! You can have 4 for dinner and not feel like you are dieting at all!
