Southwestern Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Spicy Chipotle Dipping 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.
