Recipe Summary

Main Dish
Everyone loves these tacos. I’ve managed to get my parents, my best friend, and just about everyone I know hooked on them. They’re also one of the most popular recipes on my website, I like to eat these chickpeas in blue corn taco shells with arugula, fresh tomatoes, and a tiny dollop of Sour Cream on top.
