Ingredients

  • 250 gr. of cooked chickpeas
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/3 teaspoon of spicy paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/4 purple onion
  • 200 gr. of guacamole
  • 4 corn tortillas

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, toss the oil, salt and spices and stir well so that all the ingredients are well mixed.
  2. We wash and drain the chickpeas and toss them in the bowl where we have the mixture prepared. We remove the chickpeas very well so that they are perfectly impregnated and all take flavor equally.
  3. Put a little olive oil in a pan and chop the garlic and onion very finely. When the oil is hot, add the chopped garlic and onion and let it be done until the onion is poached. When it is ready, we put out the fire and let it warm up.
  4. With the garlic and onion already tempered, drain them to remove excess oil, add them to the bowl where we have the chickpeas and stir well again.
  5. We prepare the guacamole.
  6. Heat the tortillas for a few seconds on each side, fill them with chickpeas, add the guacamole on top and serve them.
