How to make chickpea tacos?

(Refer step-by-step photos above)

Step-1: Char corn tortillas &ndash Turn your gas burner to medium-low and using tongs, place the tortillas one at a time directly over the flame. As soon as they start to brown, give them a quick flip to color the other side and then pull them off. Alternatively, you can cook tortillas on a cast iron skillet. Place tortilla in a cast iron skillet, warmed over medium-high heat, for about 15 to 30 seconds on each side. You want to look few browned or darkened spots on both sides.

Step-2: Mash ripe avocado on a warm tortilla. You go with mashed or chopped avocado. I choose to go with a first one, since it offers a squishy bed for all chickpeas to be nestled on.

  • You can use hard taco shellsinstead of soft ones if preferred.
  • For your avocado tacos filling, you can either use chopped avocado, whip up a quick, thick guacamole, or even make an avocado cream. To make avo cream blend the avocado with a little lemon/lime juice and water into a creamy consistency.
  • Feel free to sub out the tahini dressing for some Vegan Sour Cream.
  • You could sub out the red cabbage for homemade Keto Coleslaw.
  • You can also use this filling to make a deconstructed taco bowl. Fill a bowl with some leafy greens, the chickpea filling, and optionally some baked/fried tortillas.
  • You can also use this filling and the tortillas to make chickpea fajitas.
  • For additional spice, feel free to add some thinly sliced jalapeno peppers.
  • For an even healthier version, you can omit the GF tortillas in place of lettuce cups.
  • Though the flavor will vary, you can swap out the chickpeas for other legumes such as kidney beans, white beans, black beans, etc.

A couple in business & in the kitchen

As a couple who cooks together and works together, Alex and I are 1000 percent passionate about the romantic partner team. And you don’t have to run a business together either. Sharing the kitchen can be the perfect place to hone your team work. How do we cook so often? The camaraderie of having another person in it with you too. There’s no way I could do this without Alex’s encouragement and stops as the grocery store (and I’m assuming vice versa).

How are we able to function as a business and romantic partnership? One of the big things we try to do is truly seek to understand the other person. Have you heard of the Enneagram? It’s an interesting tool that represents nine distinct strategies for relating to the self, others and the world. It’s endlessly fascinating to understand your own personality and how it interfaces with your partner. (If you’re wondering, I’m a 3 and Alex is a 9. We’d love to hear yours in the comments below!) Alex and I have done a few of these tests the Enneagram and Strengths Finder are the ones that have told us the most about each other and how we interact.

And over the 10 years we’ve been married we’ve also discovered some things about each other through experience. For example, Alex is a true creative as he loves to experiment and fail. He wants to see what’s going to happen if he does something completely out of the box, even if it’s failure. For me, I was raised as a classical musician and there was a big emphasis on the right way of doing things. I was terrified of failure, or at least I figured it was advantageous to avoid failure if at all possible. Combining these two approaches to creativity has had lots of bumps along the road, but ultimately understanding both sides has made us better collaborators.

Do you work with your partner? If not, do you dream of it, or do you prefer keeping business separate?

Vegan Chipotle Chickpea Tacos

Quick and easy chipotle chickpea tacos are crunchy, spicy and on your table in less than thirty minutes. Using canned chickpeas saves a ton of time and yields a delicious result. They are crisped in a cast iron skillet and served with pickled onions, creamy avocado, and a little squeeze of lime. This recipe is vegan, but you could also add cotija cheese if you are able to eat dairy.

Make the pickled onions ahead of time or just use raw red onion if you’re still looking for crunch and color but don’t have the pickled onions on hand.

You can easily change up the seasonings in this dish to suit your liking. Try adding a chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, fresh minced garlic, cumin, or regular chili powder. The secret is to get the chickpeas crisp first and then add the seasonings and any saucy elements.

The chickpeas can be stored in the refrigerator and reheated, however, it will be hard to regain their original crispy texture and they are best eaten right away.

Avocado nutrition benefits

Avocado is an incredibly nutrient dense food to include in your diet. One cup of avocado has:

  • 10 grams of dietary fiber
  • 6 grams of plant-based protein
  • 708 mg (20 percent of your daily needs) of potassium
  • 24 percent of your daily Vitamin C needs
  • 10 percent of your daily magnesium needs

Avocado is rich in heart healthy monounsaturated fat. This type of fat is linked to reduced risk of heart disease and can help improve cholesterol levels. One cup of avocado has 14 grams of monounsaturated fat.

There is a vegan chorizo called soyricho and it’s really good. I get it with potatos onions and pickeled jalapenos I highly recommend it.
