Holy Heck I love these tacos! Super quick and easy, and light! A fun new variation to tacos. I found this recipe on

Chickpea Tacos with Guacamole

1 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 red onion, minced
1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas (or 1 14oz can, drained and rinsed)

For the taco seasoning (or use 1/2 a packet of your favorite taco seasoning mix)

1/2 Tblsp chili powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup water


2 large avocados
1 lime, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup onion, chopped finely

Smash your avocados with a fork, add remaining ingredients and mix.

For the Tacos:

 Prep guacamole first and store in refrigerator while prepping tacos. In a small bowl, combine all taco seasoning ingredients, including water.
 In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Once shimmering, add the garlic and onion and saute until onion is soft, about 3-4 minutes.
 Pour in drained chickpeas and taco seasoning, and stir to combine. Saute, stirring occasionally, until chickpeas are heated through and some of the water is evaporated, 2-3 minutes.
 Serve alongside taco shells, guacamole, cilantro and lime wedges. EnJOY!
