Chipotle-Crab Lettuce Wraps with Mango & Avocado

These are a fast and delicious lunch option

  • 1 Can Crab Meat
  • 1/2 an Avocado
  • 1 Small Yellow Mango
  • Sunflower Sprouts
  • Boston Lettuce (also called Butterhead or Bibb Lettuce)
  • 1/2 a Lime
  • Chipotle Mayo (recipe below
It all starts with delicious Chipotle Mayo! There are two ways to make it:
The Easy Way:
Add 1 to 4 chipotle peppers and a little bit of the adobo sauce (it's what the peppers are in) to approximately 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of your favourite mayo, and blend well in a blender. I used 4 peppers because I like it very spicy, but use less if you're not a spice freak like me!
The Healthy Way:
Follow THIS recipe for delicious home made mayo and then add 1-4 chipotle peppers, and a little bit of the adobo sauce to it and blend.

- Now add about 1 teaspoon of your spicy mayo to 1 can of drained crab meat and mix well. Use more if you find the mixture too dry.
- Cut your avocado and mango into cubes.
- Squeeze some lime all over your avocados and squeeze any remaining lime into the crab mixture.
- Place 2 pieces of lettuce down, back to front to form a 'cup'.
- Add a heaping spoonful of your crab mixture to the cups.
- Top each cup with diced mango and avocado and a few sunflower sprouts.

Et Voila! You've got yourself a healthy and tasty lunch!!
Hope you like :)
