  2. Yum! These look absolutely delicious. I am on the hunt for recipes with minimal cooking. It’s just way too hot in Southern California right now!

  3. I ate lunch at an Asian restaurant today which features a diversity of Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes. I almost ordered the lettuce wraps, but opted for something I hadn’t tried before.
    Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  4. I’m going to try this. I have ground turkey. I’m assuming it’s ok to substitute with that? Thanks for sharing!

  5. Ohhh I love making lettuce wraps! It’s like taco’s without all the junk! Gonna have to try this recipe!

  6. Love the lettuce wraps, quick, easy and so healthy! What’s not to like! Great post!

  7. I love lettuce wraps! Yours look delicious, I’ll have to try out this recipe. I’ve made them before without chicken (just adding in more veggies to compensate) and they came out great!

  8. I’ve just tried this recipe for lunch today and loved it! I used cashew instead of chestnut because it was what I had on hand and ground beef instead of chicken for the same reason. Also added some carrot to the mix and they were delicious! :-) Thanks for sharing!
