This quick lunch yesterday was delicious! I’m sodium sensitive so I only used one thick slice of bacon on each lettuce wrap. You might want to use two. :) These are suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto and Primal-Paleo followers as well.

CHIPOTLE MAYO: 2T. homemade mayonnaise + ½ chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, seeded and mashed well. Puree or mash these two ingredients together with a fork until a smooth mixture is formed.
DIRECTIONS: Cook the slice of bacon in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the extra tsp. of bacon grease (if needed). Add pepper and onion strips and sear/saute until they begin to soften and lightly brown. Lift the peppers and onions onto the lettuce leaf. Add the bacon. Spread or squirt the chipotle mayo onto the “sammie”. Pick up with your hands closing the lettuce leaf and chow down!
