Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 can chickpeas (15.5 ounce), drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning, I used this recipe
  • 3/4 cup salsa (use your favorite kind)

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a medium non-stick skillet over high heat. 

  2. When oil is hot, add chickpeas and taco seasoning, saute for about 1 minute for spices to be toasted. 

  3. Stir in salsa and cook, until most of the water evaporates. (Don't make it dry )

    Since the salsa is one of the flavor contributing ingredient, use the salsa you truly love. If you are not sure of the brand, then I highly recommend you tasting the salsa first with a spoon. Go ahead with the recipe, if you like the taste. 

  4. Take pan off heat and mash lightly using a potato masher.  Be careful not to mash too much. Just 2 or 3 times with the masher is good enough. We just want to bind everything together. 

  5. Serve with white rice, chopped avocado, jalapeno and cilantro.
