Lettuce Wraps

Every time I make this it turns out different, but good! It's fast and easy if you have rice & meat already cooked. All measurements are very approximate.

Basic Ingredients:
2 c. finely chopped veggies (carrots, celery, onions, broccoli, etc)
2 TBS butter
4-6 c. cooked brown rice (cook in bouillon or with beef bouillon cubes if desired)
1/2 to 1 lb cooked meat (seasoned or marinated chopped chicken, ground beef or turkey is really good)
garlic salt and/or teriyaki sauce
1-2 heads Romaine lettuce

Saute' the veggies in butter until crisp tender. Mix in the rice and meat. Season with garlic salt or pour in homemade teriyaki sauce to taste. Pull leaves off of romaine lettuce head and wash.

Use a wild rice mix
Add in stir fry veggies (I chop my veggies so the kids will be happier to eat them)
Add a can of chopped water chestnuts for some crunch.

To serve, scoop rice mixture into a lettuce leaf. Wrap and eat!
