Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Cut back on the calories without cutting back on the flavor! These lettuce wraps are so easy to make, & so delicious!


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 limes
  • 1 bunch cilantro chopped
  • 1 head of butter leaf lettuce or your favorite kind
  • 1 jalapeno seeded & minced (optional)


  • Drizzle a little bit of olive oil in a large skillet & heat to medium/high. Pop in 1 pound of ground chicken. I buy boneless skinless chicken thighs and grind them up myself in the food processor - but you can buy it already ground too.
  • Stir the ground chicken, breaking it all up. Add in one small onion diced & 2 chipotle peppers (diced). Drizzle in a little of the sauce it comes in too if you like it spicy like I do.
  • Let the mixture cook until the chicken is lightly browned & cooked through. Stir in 1 diced & seeded jalapeno pepper (optional), 2 cloves of minced garlic, and the juice from one lime. Allow to cook 2 additional minutes, then remove from the heat.
  • Divide the mixture between your pieces of lettuce. Garnish with cilantro, & squeeze a little extra lime juice on top. Serve.
