Chicken Tortilla Lettuce Wraps


INGREDIENTS:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
3 tablespoons taco seasoning (I use reduced sodium, medium heat)
1 head butter lettuce
1 medium tomato, diced small (I used Roma, vine-ripened or cherry tomatoes may be substituted)
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced small
1/2 cup corn (I used frozen, fresh may be substituted)
1 cup shredded cheese (I use a Mexican blend with monterey Jack and cheddar)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely minced
1/2 cup seasoned tortilla chips, crushed (I crush Doritos in my palm)
1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed, optional
1 medium Hass avocado, peeled and diced or make into guacamole, optional
salsa, optional for garnshing
sour cream, optional for garnishing

DIRECTIONS:
  1. To a large skillet, add the olive oil, chicken, and cook over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes, flipping and stirring intermittently so all sides cook evenly. After the chicken has cooked through, evenly sprinkle with taco seasoning and stir to evenly coat. Cooking time will vary based on thickness of chicken breasts and sizes of pieces. Allow chicken to rest in pan off the heat while you prep the remaining ingredients.
  2. Peel off the leaves of the butter lettuce from the core and stack them on a plate.
  3. Place 2 leaves of butter lettuce on a separate plate (I like to double up the leaves so the wraps are sturdier) and add about 3 tablespoons chicken, 1 tablespoon tomatoes, 1 tablespoon bell peppers, 1 tablespoon corn, 2 tablespoons cheese, a pinch of cilantro, and sprinkle with tortilla chips to taste. Optionally add black beans, avocado or guacamole, salsa, or sour cream for garnishing. Fold up and enjoy immediately. Repeat until chicken and remaining ingredients are gone. Wraps are best fresh.
