Do not let their humble appearance fool you, these wraps are downright delicious and taste like a guilty pleasure without the guilt! I am a big fan of the Asian-flavored lettuce wraps at P.F. Chang’s and when I was brainstorming ways to use the leftover burger-seasoned ground beef from my Cheeseburger Pizza, this is what I came up with. I recommend storing any leftover meat mixture in the fridge immediately because otherwise you will be tempted to eat it out of the bowl with a spoon! Trust me. These may not be the prettiest or fanciest things I’ve made but they’re a great way to get all the yummy flavors of a juicy, cheesy burger in a low carb, low point way.
