  1. I know there have been a few errors with the new website. This is probably one of them. Most of the ingredients aren’t showing up in the list above.

  2. I made about 10 different recipes today from this site to get ready for my new baby due in a few days. I haven’t eaten this with the lettuce yet but had to try the filling it smelled so good! It’s delicious! I would compare it to Korean bbq. Will definitely be making this again and probably doubling the amount. Thanks for a great recipe!

  3. Love this recipe!! Super easy, super delish and easy to make your own….I add water chestnuts and cooked quinoa and replace the peanuts with cashews…it doesn’t last long in my home!!
