Spicy Pork in Lettuce Cups

So here is a dish that you can make and if you do not have the lettuce then you can use the pork mix as a topping for salads. This makes a great meal and really is simpler then one would expect. Once again this is for a big old pot of the stuff so if you think this is too much then chop the recipe in half or even to a quarter if needed. They also work well tossed with noodles warm in a bowl.


3*1 lb package of Pork Chorizo
2 lbs small diced Pork
1 lb package Beef Chorizo
4 Bell Peppers of your choice
Mine was 1 orange, 2 red, and 1 yellow
1 bunch of Green Onions
1/2 can of Chipotle in Adobo
1/2 lb Honey Roasted Peanuts
1/2 clove of Elephant Garlic or 2 cloves Garlic
1 head Iceburg Lettuce


Get your all your meat in the pot on medium heat first to cook up and their will be a fair amount of fat coming out we are going to use this to help flavor all the veggies. It will be the base of the sauce for everything to contribute to. While this is going on you can chop up your veggies. Roughly dice everything before tossing the green onions and garlic in when the meat seems to be almost cooked through. Continue to heat until warmed through before removing from the


Toss your veggies on with the remnants of fat in the pot to help saute the all the beautiful colors. Toss your peanuts when you are ready to pull the trigger, and if you are worried about the sugar of the peanuts burning then a quick stir every so often will make sure to stop that. You want to cook everything until peppers begin to shimmer like little gems from sauteing.


When you put the meat back in to heat together you can add your Chipotle in Adobo before mixing it all together and warming it up. If there happens to be a couple of caramelized things at the bottom of the pan then you can deglaze with a couple drops of Rice Wine Vinegar before continuing to finish it up


Take your Iceberg Lettuce and get your filling in to the cup. I find a quarter cup of the filling per leaf is right about good for me before rolling up and chowing down. If you do not want the little amount of sauce to leak then you could always double up on your leaves with no problems.
