Doesn’t that mango and avocado look so heavenly?! I use bibb lettuce for my lettuce wraps, but you can get creative and use any base lettuce you like!

Ingredients

Caribbean Pulled Chicken

Mango Salsa

  • 3 mangos, diced
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice of 1/2 lime

Everything Else

  • Head of butter lettuce or lettuce leaves of choice
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Any other add-ins you'd like

Instructions

  • Place all of the pulled chicken ingredients into the insert of your slow cooker. Mix to combine flavors, then put on high for 3 hours.
  • While it's cooking, prepare the mango salsa: In a bowl toss together all ingredients and set aside in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • When the chicken is done, shred with two forks and mix into the sauce. Let sit for 10 minutes, covered.
  • Assemble lettuce wraps, top with mango salsa and other desired toppings, like avocado and tomato, and serve.

Recipe Notes

  • The juice from the chicken is delicious, but makes the lettuce wraps a tad messy if you don't slightly strain when assembling.
