So, I was in a little accident a couple of weeks ago (thankfully NOONE was hurt!), and my car was totaled. Pretty sure it was because I had an older van that wasn’t worth a lot… so when it came to repairing it, the parts just cost way more than the van was worth. Oh well! So… we are blessed to have an awesome insurance company and ended up being able to shop for a “new” to us van! I will tell you one thing though, shopping for a vehicle is hysterical with children. They are VERY opinionated. We went and saw this one van and the moment we got into it, my daughter said, LOUDLY, “Mom, I do NOT like this van at ALL. It stinks and is dirty”. Lol! Well, I don’t think the car salesman was surprised when we didn’t come back to purchase said vehicle. Ha! The one we DID end up purchasing, she kept whispering to me “can we keep it mommy? REALLY, can we keep it?”. I took that as a good sign! 🙂 Kids are just too funny! My son, 3, just kept climbing all over everything and pushing all of the buttons. Hopefully he didn’t cause issues in the vehicles that we did NOT buy!
So… having that done, BACK TO COOKING!
I made these a couple weeks back… and they are DELISH!
Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Bacon and Avocado!
- 3 chicken tenders or one chicken breast; seasoned, cooked and diced
- 1/2 pint of grape tomatoes, diced
- 1/2 avocado, diced
- 4 slices bacon, cooked and diced
- 4 iceberg or romaine lettuce leaves
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- Shredded Cheese
- Diced sweet mini peppers – about 2
Creamy Avocado Dressing
- 1/2 Avocado diced
- juice of 1 lime
- 3 Tb vinegar (I used flavored vinegar) like rice or white balsamic
- 2 TB honey
- dash of hot sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 TB olive oil
If this dressing is too thick, just add more of whichever liquid you prefer. You can also add some lemon juice.
Prepare the creamy dressing in a blender or, like me, in my Nutri-Bullet. Set aside for topping lettuce wraps.
To prepare the lettuce wraps, divide the diced chicken among the four lettuce leaves, then top with avocado, tomatoes, bacon, shredded cheese, diced peppers and creamy avocado dressing.
To eat, simply pick up the wrap, tuck in all sides and ENJOY!
And now, for the quote of the day from a Carrie Underwood song:
