Crunchy, spicy, fresh, sweet, and savory? What more could you ask for in one lil wrap? :)

1 Carrot, cut to thin small matchsticks

1 Jalapeno, thinly sliced

2 Whole cloves garlic

1 Cup water

1/2 Cup white vinegar

3 Tablespoons sugar

2 lbs 80/20% Ground beef

1/3 Cup soy sauce

3 Tablespoons light brown sugar

1/2 Tablespoon honey

3-4 Tablespoons corn starch

2 Tsp ground ginger

2 Cloves of garlic, minced

2 Tsp Salt

2 Tsp Fresh ground pepper

For Chipotle Sauce

1/3 Cup mayo

3 Tablespoons sour cream

1 Chipotle pepper (from 1 can of chiptole peppers in adobo sauce)

1 Tablespoon adobo sauce (from can)

pinch of salt & pepper

2 Heads of bib lettuce

1/2 Red onion, thinly sliced

2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro

In a medium sauce pan, boil water, vinegar, sugar and whole garlic cloves. While waiting for boil, slice as thinly as possible the cucumber, carrot and jalapeno. Place in a bowl. Once pickling liquid comes to a boil, pour into bowl with veggies. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside. In a large skillet brown beef and drain fat. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, garlic, and corn starch. Stir and let simmer for several minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. While beef is simmering, in a small bowl combine mayo, sour cream, chipotle pepper chopped, and adobo sauce. Stir well and add salt and pepper to taste. Before serving, strain pickling liquid from veggies and pick out garlic cloves. To make wraps, take a lettuce leave add a spoonful of beef, a few veggies, a small dollop of chipotle sauce, and sprinkle with a few slices of red onion and cilantro. (If you don't want it so spicy, use sauce for dipping instead of inside wrap.)
