Leftovers: Thai Peanut Pork Lettuce Wraps

Did you like the Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork we made on Wednesday? Well, I hope you made extra because you're going to love this leftover remix.

Thai Peanut Pork Lettuce Wraps
Serves 3-4

2 cups leftover Thai Peanut Pork
1/2 cup diced water chestnuts (about half of a 5-ounce can), optional
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
10-12 large lettuce leaves from a head of iceberg or butter lettuce
1.5 cups cooked rice
1/2 cup very, very thinly sliced red pepper
1 cup chow mein noodles
1/2 cup hoisin sauce

Stir water chestnuts into leftover Thai Peanut Pork and reheat for in the microwave until warmed through. Stir in lime juice and cilantro. Let everyone build their own lettuce wraps by piling rice, pork, red pepper, chow mein noodles, and hoisin sauce into a lettuce leaf. Serve with plenty of napkins...this one is as messy as it is delicious!
