Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Lettuce wraps roll spicy Buffalo chicken and fresh homemade Ranch dressing into convenient, finger-friendly packages just waiting for you to pick them up and sink your teeth into them.

If you want more vegetables involved, you could always doctor up your wraps with some extras. What about white mushrooms, bell peppers, or matchstick carrots? You can also do it without the Ranch if you’d rather, or if you just don’t want to fuss with making mayonnaise (we’ve all been there).

For the wrap lettuce, you could theoretically use any kind, but butter lettuce is one of the best because it’s naturally soft enough to wrap, but strong enough to resist breaking when you pick it up. It holds up a lot better to the whole wrap process than Romaine or iceberg.

If you held each wrap together with a toothpick, these would make cute lunchbox lunches. But they’d also be good just as a regular meal, with some extra vegetables on the side or just by themselves.
