Chickpea Salad Tacos is a filling taco meal that has a nutritious flavor packed chickpea salad, guacamole and a delicious mango taco sauce. I love tacos and its probably my favorite Mexican food closely followed by a Burrito bowl. But Mr.P is not a big fan. Come to think of it, Mr. P is not a fan of anything that is not Indian. So, when i do usually make some things that are not definitively Indian, i resort to adding an Indian touch to get the man eat and save myself the trouble of making dosa. Thankfully, Mexican food can easily be adapted to make it look deceptively Indian and the man enjoys a taco or two. But this chickpea salad tacos was made when he was not around. And hence the addition of guacamole and such.
I have used a robust salad chock full of veggies and chickpeas tossed in an assortment of spices for the filling. The toppings are this mango taco sauce and guacamole. These chickpea salad tacos made such a filling meal and was a welcome change to my roti subzi routine. If you live in India, then Godrej Nature Basket s online store sells a range of taco shells including this12 piece taco shell box. They also stock a variety of taco sauce and seasonings.
These chickpea salad tacos involves three recipes and cooking the tacos either in the oven or in the microwave. I microwaved the taco shells for 1 min 30 secs. Honestly, i was really not in a mood to fire up the oven because i was just putting these together for myself. If you are making a large batch, then the oven route is worth the trouble.
