These Chipotle Chickpea Tacos are everything you want in a taco – meaty, spicy, smoky and a freaking flavor bomb! Five ingredients, ready in less than 15 minutes, and absolutely delicious.


For The Tacos

  • 1 15 ounce can No Salt Added or Low-Sodium chickpeas
  • 1 Tbsp. low sodium soy or tamari sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chipotle chili powder. (If you want it hotter add more. Less hot, not so much.)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 6 corn tortillas

Suggested Toppings

  • Guacamole
  • Chopped Cilantro
  • Cashew Sour Cream


  1. Heat nonstick skillet over medium to medium high heat.
  2. While pan is heating, drain and rinse chickpeas.
  3. Once the pan is ready, add chickpeas and cook for about a minute.
  4. Add remaining ingredients making sure to mix well to cover chickpeas. Cook until moisture has disappeared from the pan, usually a couple minutes.
  5. Divide the chickpeas between 6 tacos, top as desired and serve. My favorite is just guacamole and cilantro.
