Southwestern Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Spicy Chipotle Dipping Sauce

Oxmoor House
Prep time 7 mins
Cook time 2 mins
Yield 6 servings (serving size: 2 wraps and 2 tablespoons sauce)
Crisp iceberg lettuce cradles a Southwest-inspired mix of rice, beans, chicken, and salsa. Find fresh salsa in the produce section of your supermarket. It generally has 50 percent less sodium than bottled salsa, and it tastes like it's homemade.


  • 1 (8.8-ounce) package microwaveable precooked whole-grain brown rice (such as Uncle Ben's Ready Rice)
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 3/4 cup fresh salsa
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onion (about 3)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can reduced-sodium black beans (such as Bush's), rinsed and drained
  • 12 iceberg lettuce leaves
  • Spicy Chipotle Dipping Sauce
