Southwest Chicken Lettuce Wraps

{recipe& pic from} the mother huddle

Southwest Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps With an Avocado Lime Dressing

head of iceberg lettuce, with the full leafs pulled off, or tortillas
meat from 1 rotisserie chicken, or four chicken breasts, cubed and chilled
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
a bunch of cilantro, chopped
6 green onions, or 1 white onion, finely chopped
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 teaspoon of cumin
salt and pepper
optional: 1-3 jalapenos finally chopped (if you like heat)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, except for the lettuce.
1 cup green chili sauce (I used canned)
2 avocados
4 ounces of fresh lime juice, or the juice of 4 limes
1/2 cup of sour cream
Blend in a blender until smooth.
Pour the dressing over the chicken mixture, you may not need the whole amount, just add until it is the consistency you like.
Then scoop up into a lettuce cup and enjoy!  I think this would also be so good with some of that green Tabasco sauce, I just haven’t tried it yet.
Let me know if you make them and what you would do different!
