I still can’t believe that we have had such strange weather this year. Snow throughout the entirety of April and now blazing hot in June. When the weather gets this steamy, I try not to heat up my house too much while cooking meals. I like to opt for lighter meals during the summer. Why is it that eating salad for dinner doesn’t seem always to fill me up, but eating lettuce wraps always does?
I have been big into lettuce wraps these past few weeks. I have been turning every sandwich, taco, salad, and burger into a lettuce wrap. I prefer romaine lettuce for my lettuce wraps because it is super crunchy.
I found a new product while I was grocery shopping at Super Target. Canned Mango. I love mango, but I hate cutting them. My brother got me this mango cutter a few years ago, and I still have a hard time using it. When I saw this canned mango, I picked up several cans because I have a few different recipes that I want to try with it.
I made this mango chicken using my Instant Pot, but it can also be made on the stove. This chicken only took 7 minutes to cook in my Instant Pot, and I topped it with all kinds of yummy things. Bell pepper, green onions, and Thai chili sauce.
Here is a little video I put together for you. I didn’t add too much spice to this because I fed it to my kids, but you can add more if you like.

These lettuce wraps were excellent. It kills me a little bit that the photos didn’t turn out the way I wanted, but my family was hungry and life happens. I have another recipe in the works using this canned mango, stay tuned!
