Lettuce Wraps with Chipotle-Orange Beef

After being at the beach today I wanted to continue our “vacation” vibe, so I made these lettuce wraps and served them with an icy tropical drink. Wow, so good! These are very spicy though, so you will have to adjust the amount of peppers or the adobo sauce if spicy is not your thing. Enjoy!

1 lb. ground beef
1 Tbsp. butter
1 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 C. orange marmalade
2 chipotle peppers in adobo
sauce, minced
2 Tbsp. adobo sauce from
chipotle peppers
1/4 tsp. salt
1-2 heads boston lettuce

In a large skillet, saute ground beef over medium-high heat until browned and crumbly. Drain, set aside. Wipe skillet clean. Melt butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; saute until lightly, browned. Stir in cooked beef, marmalade, minced chipotle, adobo sauce, and salt; cook until heated through. Serve beef mixture with lettuce leaves.
