  1. Well, I just love it for the water chestnuts alone!

  2. This sounds really good and pretty easy! I pinned it...hope that's ok. If not, just let me know, and I'll take it down.

  3. Actually...I didn't pin it (tried to right after posting...domain said couldn't. Sorry...glad you had that up.).

  4. I've never tried making my own lettuce wraps! Those look really good! I also like the addition of the water chestnuts! It's like an Asian-Mexican fusion taco! Thanks for sharing! I'll have to try making something like this!
