Chicken Taco Lettuce Wraps

Here's a quick meal I came up with using rotisserie chicken! This is my play on a typical lettuce wrap, but using Mexican flavors to create a healthy taco. I think these would be fun served family style, with the filling in a large bowl for people to serve themselves.

It requires no cooking at all & is so fresh and flavorful. If you don't have a rotisserie chicken on hand, feel free to substitute saut├ęd ground beef or grilled chicken breast. You can also wrap the taco filling in corn tortillas~ it's up to you! The leftover filling is perfect over romaine for a lunch salad the next day. Enjoy!


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup shredded chicken breast
  • 2 Tbsp salsa (I use Trader Joe's Double Roasted Salsa)
  • 1/4 cup mixed bell peppers, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 Tbsp red onion, sliced into thin strips
  • 4 romaine leaves (I used "baby" romaine)
  • hot sauce, optional
  • avocado, sliced
  • lime

Directions:
  1. Mix the chicken, salsa, bell peppers, & red onion in a small bowl (add hot sauce if you like it spicy).
  2. Fill the romaine leaves with the taco filling & garnish with sliced avocado & a squeeze of fresh lime.
*Makes 4 tacos. I was starving, so only 3 made it to the final picture ;)
