Pinterest Food Challenge: Chipolte Chicken Lettuce Wraps

My latest Pinterest recipe experiment was these Lettuce Wraps.

I didn’t change the recipe at all other than using a different lettuce because I couldn’t find the butter lettuce at the store. Sad story because that lettuce actually holds the chicken and keeps it from falling out everywhere.

Anyways… here’s the makings of the sauce (lime juice, chipolte peppers, adobo sauce, and cilantro.

Mix that with the chicken and the corn and I ended up with these.

I only used 2 of the chipolte peppers and it was pretty spicy… we like spicy around here so it was good. Maybe next time I’ll try a third, but I don’t think it needed it.

So, would I make it again. Yep. David also said he thought it would be good with rice… I think that may have been the lettuce wrap failure talking, but I do think it would be good that way.

Anyways… go pin it and then make it!
