Buffalo Lettuce Wrap Tips:
Here are some general tips when making any lettuce wraps.
- Use a lettuce that can easily create cups. For example butter lettuce or iceberg lettuces work great.
- Double up on lettuce to create your cups. This will help the filling stay in the cups better.
- Don’t overstuff the lettuce cups as it makes it way harder to eat! The wraps should be able to be rolled almost like a taquito to be eaten easily.
- Have fun with the flavors and combinations.
Lettuce Wrap Ideas:

For example instead of using buffalo sauce try tossing the chicken in salsa verde instead to make lettuce wrap tacos.
