Whaddya know? Another taco recipe! These guys are pretty significantly different than most of the other tacos I’ve posted though and that’s thanks to the presence of the chickpeas, which serve as the base.
There’s one other thing that makes these a lil’ bit special: Garlic Gold. When I saw this in the ingredients list, it very nearly discouraged me from trying these because I didn’t even know what it was. When I figured it out and then realized that the only way to get it is to order it online, that about sealed the deal. Somehow though, my curiosity got the better of me and I went ahead and ordered some (the fact that the website mentioned how great/easy this stuff is for making garlic bread may or may not have also had something to do with my decision). It turned out to be a good call and I hope you’ll take a chance on it too!
