I don’t know that I necessarily consider this a “recipe” in part because it was easy and I just randomly threw it together. However, a lot of individuals have reached out recently wanting to know simply “what I eat,” and it’s rarely far from elaborate or difficult. So, here’s what I had for dinner last night, which rocked my socks off.
Keep in mind, most of my dinners are either from food I cooked and/or prepped over the weekend – to easily last me throughout the week, OR, leftovers and random things I throw together from items I have on hand, like this. Also, I don’t typically measure when I make things like this (I estimated to give you a baseline), so feel free to change the ratios or add more/less of an ingredient per your personal preference (my own personal preference is to add a shit-ton of cilantro)!
Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps
- 2 avocados, diced
- 1/4 cup diced red onion
- Fresh juice of 1/2 a lime
- Handful of cilantro (probably a loosely packed 1/4 cup)
- 1 1/2 cups finely diced chicken (again, I used leftover crock-pot roasted chicken I have on hand)
- 1 1/2 TBSP Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo
- 3 romaine lettuce leaves (for wrapping)
Mix all ingredients except for the romaine lettuce leaves, well. Spoon the mixture into the 3 romaine leaves, wrap, and eat. I had a little leftover, but was full with 3 wraps. Also, I feel like a key component of good lettuce wraps, is finely diced chicken 🙂 This could easily be replicated in a larger quantity, too.
Chicken is my all time fav! Perfect treat 🙂
I LOVE having a lot leftover from a roast/grill, that I can re-purpose and do a ton with! So handy 🙂
