Chimichanga Lettuce Wraps

i read somewhere just the other day that anything you can wrap in a tortilla, you can wrap in lettuce. i read this at the right time, since we're not currently eating tortillas ! i decided to give it a try and tonight we had chicken chimichanga meat wrapped in lettuce, and it was DELICIOUS ! a hit with the whole family !

here's what i did ...

mix the following items together in a bowl ...
2 chicken breasts, cooked (we grilled them) and diced
1 jar salsa, I use a medium
1 tsp ground cumin
a bit of fresh oregano, maybe 2 or 3 teaspoons of leaves (or 1 tsp if using dried)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 finely chopped green onions (spring onions)
1 tin of tomatoes

throw that in the microwave for just a couple minutes to heat it all up. it doesn't need to be piping hot, just warm ...

i put that bowl on the table, about 1/2 a head of iceberg lettuce pulled apart, the greek yoghurt (you could use sour cream if you prefer) and some hot salsa for Rory.


wrap 'em up and eat 'em.

oh, and make sure you have plenty of napkins on the table ... these bad boys are MESSY !
