Be sure to chop all the vegetables really fine, using a chopper or food processor.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add meat to the skillet, breaking it up as it cooks. Season with cayenne pepper. Cook until meat browns.
Add onion, green onion, celery, and garlic (for AP option add mushrooms and red bell pepper). Reduce heat to medium. Add white vinegar and cook for 5 minutes.
Add tomato paste, stirring to combine well. Cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. Serve approximately 1/3 cup of the sloppy joe mixture on each leaf of butter lettuce. 3 lettuce leaf wraps per serving.
Double or triple the batch for the week! You can easily make the sloppy joe mixture ahead of time and freeze in individual servings in freezer bags.
