Chickpea Tacos

You know what’s awesome about taco night? The fact that you can easily replace the meat filling!


1 can of chickpeas

Taco shells (I used Old El Paso, soft shells)

3 tbsps from a packet of taco seasoning (again part of the Old El Paso kit, garlic paprika seasoning)

2 tbps Nutritional yeast

Your preferred toppings (tomatoes, homemade guacamole, red onion, canned jalapeño peppers, spinach, romain lettuce, and franks red hot sauce pictured here).


Drain your can of chickpeas, leaving enough liquid  to cover the bottom of a small frying pan. Add the chickpeas to the pan and mash about half of the chickpeas with a fork. Add Nutritional Yeast to the mixture and sprinkle with the seasoning. Heat up on medium heat and stir in the seasoning.

Serve warmed! 

It’s super quick and easy and delicious.

For the guacamole: take 1 ripe avocado, add about  4 cloves of minced garlic and 1 tbsp lemon juice and mash the avocado into a thick paste.
