How to Make Cin's 'Mr Pepper wrapped in a Leafy Red Suit' sammie


  1. I rubbed the red peppers with my homemade garlic infused oil and roasted them on the grill.
    Rough chop the roasted peppers, set aside.

    Slice the yellow squash and steam (or boil in Water) til tender, set aside.

    Rince lettuce leaves, pat dry and set aside.

    Dice tomato, and set aside (can peal or leave as is)
  2. Combine peppers, squash and, diced tomato in a bowl. Add salt and pepper (to taste).

    Pour the Crema Balsamica over this and fold together...add cheese, stir together and set in refrigerator until needed.
  3. MEAT:
    Fold chicken chunks, mayo & dry mustard together, breaking chuncks up a little so they are not to large (or mash it up if you'd rather)....I like small chunks in this. Add salt and pepper (if needed).
    OPTION: Add pickle rellish if you desire.
  4. Take the lettuce leaves and lay 2-together (so it's sturdy enough to hold everything), repeating until all 6 are used.
    You'll be making 3 wraps.
    Spoon as much of the chicken mixture on top of lettuce leaves.
    Divide roasted red pepper mix between the 3-lettuce wraps and spoon over chicken.
  5. Now roll lettuce leaves lengthwise, so it's in long tube like wraps.
    Cut one of the wraps in half.
    Lay one an a half wrap on each of the 2-plates, add potato salad, cucumber slices and triscuits on the side to go with your
    'Mr Pepper wraped in a Red Suit' sammies.
  6. Serves: 2

    P.S. I do not use a lot of salt, so you just use the amount you want.
