Have you ever tried Chickpea and Guacamole Tacos? Many people keep canned beans in their pantry, and they are great for a quick meal. I got the idea for seasoning the chickpeas with Mexican spices and sauteing them on the stove when making Protein-Packed Vegan Sweet Potato, Kale, and Chickpea Bowls.
This recipe for Chickpea and Guacamole Tacos builds on my Guacamole In A Hurry recipe. So make sure you have those ingredients (avocados, lemon juice, hot sauce, and salt) on hand.
You can change up the seasonings however you like. I used cumin, garlic powder, oregano, and chili powder, but chipotle or cayenne would work if you like an extra kick.
I kept the tacos simple and topped them with cilantro and Cholula hot sauce, but you could also add chopped tomatoes, sliced olives or radishes, or whatever you like. And if you’re a cilantro hater, feel free to omit it.
Now it’s time to make Chickpea and Guacamole Tacos!

Put the chickpeas in a bowl and add the spices. Toss well to combine.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chickpeas and cook until hot and slightly crunchy on the outside, 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Divide the guacamole among the tortillas, then top with the chickpeas.

Serve with lime wedges and enjoy!
