I have a minor culinary obsession with chickpeas. They’re inexpensive, high in protein, iron and fiber, low in fat, and can help lower cholesterol. I buy them in 6 lb. cans, by the case.
I’m amazed by chickpeas’ versatility, and they’ve become the staple of one of my favorite healthy, fast, at home meals…chickpea tacos!
Chickpea Tacos Recipe
1/2 cup liquid from cooking chickpeas (or water)*
1 packet taco seasoning
taco shells & toppings
This couldn’t be easier! I add the chickpeas, liquid, and taco seasoning to a skillet and cook it over medium-high heat until the liquid is absorbed.
I usually serve the chickpeas in hard taco shells with lettuce and salsa. I’ve also served them in flour tortillas, or over a bed of romaine for a quick & healthy taco salad!
*Or two 15 oz. cans of chickpeas, one drained and one undrained.
This sounds and looks so good I am going to try this tonite for dinner. Wish I could try it now, thanks.
Thanks for taking the time to post…I hope you enjoyed your tacos :)
