Cooking The Chipotle Chickpeas Heat up the avocado oil over medium-high heat in a pan or skillet. Add the chopped red onion and cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until soft. While the onions are cooking, mix together the chipotle chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Add the drained chickpeas to the pan and mix into the onions. Pour the chipotle seasoning into the pan and mix until the chickpeas are evenly coated. Whisk together the minced garlic, tomato sauce, and apple cider vinegar. Pour into the pan and stir. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce slightly thickens. Lower the heat and keep warm until ready to serve. Making The Chickpea Tacos While the chickpeas are cooking, heat up the tortillas directly on a gas burner or in a pan. Layer each tortilla with fresh cilantro leaves, chipotle chickpeas, sliced radishes, vegan crumbled cheese, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Serve and enjoy!
To tone down the spicy level, simply swap out some or all of the chipotle chili powder for ancho chili powder or regular chili powder.
