Ingredients


Makes: 4 servings
  • 2 cans (19 oz/540 ml each) chickpeas
  • 1 pkg Taco Seasoning (Pkg of 3)
  • 3/4 C (180 ml) water
  • 1 can (5.5 oz/156 ml) tomato paste
  • 1 avocado
  • 8 crunchy taco shells
  • 1/2 C (125 ml) 2% Greek yogurt
  • Toppings (optional): salsa, sliced onions, shredded cabbage, and jalapenos

Preparation


 
  • Drain and rinse chickpeas. Add to a sauté pan over medium heat with taco seasoning, water, and tomato paste. Stir to combine and cook until fragrant, 3 – 4 min.
  • Meanwhile, cut avocado in half; discard pit. Scoop out flesh and slice.
  • Remove pan from heat. Using Ground Meat Separator, lightly mash chickpeas until some have broken up.
  • To serve, spoon chickpea filling into taco shells; top with avocado and Greek yogurt. Add additional toppings, if desired.

Tip


 

Recipe Tip: Swap avocado for Epicure’s guacamole.

Recipe tip: Consider cooking chickpeas in microwave using Multipurpose Steamer. Simply combine chickpeas (drained and rinsed), seasoning, water, and tomato paste. Cover; microwave on high 2–3 min until heated through.

Recipe tip: Have some chickpea filling leftovers? Try them in a taco salad.
