There’s a good chance your first thought when you hear of chickpea tacos is “Ew, who’d want to eat that?” But trust me on this. They are amazing.
What you need:
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 1 package of taco spice
- 1 clove of garlic (minced)
- Dash of lime juice
- 1 tablespoon of water
- Vegetable oil or extra virgin olive oil (how much is up to you)
- Hard taco shells (blue corn if possible)
- taco fixings (lettuce, onion, tomato, salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole)
Take a can of chickpeas, rinse them, then put them in a bowl. Evenly coat the chickpeas with the taco spice, garlic, lime juice, water and oil. Bake them for 20 minutes. Cook the taco shells for 10 minutes.
Take them out of the oven, add your fixings.
I actually found these because I said chickpea to someone in an e-mail. Gmail picked up the word (as it scans your e-mails for keywords and directs ads at you based on these) and promoted a recipe link to me. For the record, this recipe is the only reason I am okay with Gmail reading my mail.
