Chickpea Tacos

I was digging through one of my mother-in-law's cookbooks this summer when I came across this Chickpea Taco recipe. I'm a sucker for anything involving avocado, so I thought I'd give it a try. I was NOT disappointed! (Hubby loved it too!)

This recipe is easy and fast! As a bonus, it's vegetarian! This will feed two adults, but I found myself wishing I had doubled it, so consider yourself warned!

Knock-your-socks-off Chickpea Tacos

  • 1 avocado, peeled/pitted/diced
  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas (aka: garbanzo beans)
  • 3 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 4 tsp lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 8 corn taco shells
  • 2 cups baby salad greens
  • 1 cup prepared salsa
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • Mash avocado with a fork
  • Stir in chickpeas, cilantro, lime juice and garlic
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper
  • Fill each shell with 1/4 cup chickpea-avocado mixture, some salad greens, salsa, sour cream
  • Enjoy at room temperature or cold!
