Cut the bottom third off the lettuce and place the lettuce in a bowl of cold water. Let soak for about 10 minutes to help the leaves separate. Separate the leaves and trim with scissors into ‘cups’. Finely chop the chipotles. Chop the garlic. Trim and thinly slice the red onion, top to bottom. Cut one lime in half and the other into wedges. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut into thin wedges. Separate cilantro into sprigs.
Heat a medium frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the vegetable oil and the ground chicken. While cooking, stir and break up the meat. Once cooked through, add the garlic and cook another 30 seconds.* Add the chipotles, sugar, salt, and juice from half of the lime. Cook another 30 seconds. Adjust seasoning and add more lime to taste.
Serve the chicken mixture with the lettuce cups, onions, avocado, cilantro, and lime wedges and let your guests build their own lettuce wraps.
*For food safety, cook ground chicken to an internal temperature of 165°F.
