Southwest Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Southwest Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Have you had those nights that you are just done and you don’t want to cook dinner? I was having one of those nights and TJ decided to get creative in the kitchen and he created Southwest Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

He was really trying to keep my dietary needs in mind while he created. High protein and low carbs, so he found a small lettuce head in the fridge and used that for me instead of tortillas.

Not only did he create a tasty dish but a lovely one as well. I quickly grabbed my camera and took photos. I told him he was going to have to start blogging for me. What do you think?
