Chickpea tacos

Picture of chickpea tacos
Chickpea tacos are super tasty and come together in less than 10 minutes! They're pretty filling, too.

I've seen versions online where you bake the chickpeas, but I don't care for them in tacos when they get too crunchy and hard. So this is my shortcut version of chickpea tacos that does not involve heating up my apartment by using the oven forever. :D

(it is May and currently 75 in my apartment and it's nearly midnight. the oven is out of the question. :P)

Step 1: Ingredients!

Picture of ingredients!
  • 1 14.5 oz can chickpeas
  • a lime
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • tomatoes and cilantro for serving
If you don't have a packet of taco seasoning, follow the link above to get my recipe. If you're stocked up on spices you should be able to make it. :D

Step 2: Prep work!

Rinse and drain your chickpeas. Slice your onions nice and thin and mince your garlic. :)

Step 3: Cooking, round one

Heat a pan over medium high heat with a little oil in it. Put in the chickpeas and onions and a pinch of salt. You're going to want to cook this, stirring pretty often, until the onions and chickpeas begin to brown a little. At that point, add the minced garlic and taco seasoning. :)

Tried this tonite and the wife and I loved it. It's definately a repeat and we may try some improvising on it too. Thanks!

Simple but delicious, everyone loved them!
Great recipe. I served it with sour cream, cheese and salsa. My other half ate hers on hard shells, I ate on soft corn/flour blend tortillas. I will definitely make this again.

Perfect--as ever! These sound wonderful, and I have all those ingredients in my house right now! I know what's for dinner...Thanks for the great idea! :)
I made them last night and they were a huge success! We added some grilled chicken...they were devoured by the 4 year old all the way up to the hubby! High fives!

I thought these were tacos made from chick peas - could be great for my gluten intolerant friend. But it's also a great filling, thanks.
