A few months ago, I thought chickpeas were only good for hummus. That's the only way I had ever had them! Then, a friend introduced me to falafel, and everything changed. I realized that chickpeas were much more versatile than I gave them credit. I began to experiment with different recipes, making chickpea curries and chickpea "tuna salad." Then I found the recipe below and my whole world changed. When mashed up a little bit, chickpeas have the same texture as ground beef. Now, chickpea tacos are my new favorite!
You can absolutely buy a can of chickpeas if you prefer, but it's so quick and easy to make them from scratch using the Instant Pot. This electric pressure cooker makes it possible to transform dried chickpeas into taco Tuesday within 30 minutes. They will be more flavorful and have less sodium than the canned variety, so give it a try!
