Easy, healthy and delicious! The combination of the tangy and spicy Vindaloo sauce with chickpeas, cool sour cream, avocados and crunchy carrot slaw is fantastic.

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. In a medium sized pot, combine chickpeas with Masala Mama Vindaloo Sauce** and crushed red pepper. Simmer over medium heat until thick and coated, 5-7 minutes. Adjust salt to taste.
  2. Make a simple slaw combining the carrots, cabbage and most of the cilantro with some lime juice, salt and pepper.
  3. Heat your tacos on a hot cast iron skillet, adding a small amount of ghee, butter or olive oil, about 30-40 seconds on each side.
  4. To assemble: spoon some of the chickpea filling onto the tortilla. Add a dollop of sour cream or yogurt, top with the carrot slaw, avocados, and garnish with cilantro.
  5. TIP: Also works nicely with tortilla chips in place of the tortillas!
