Ingredients

Scale

  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 cup fresh chopped cilantro ( set aside 2 tsp for the yogurt sauce)
  • 1 Hass avocado, peeled and pit removed
  • 1-1 1/2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp salt 
  • 24 grape tomatoes sliced in half
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 cup corn kernels ( fresh or frozen)
  • 6 corn tortillas

  • 1/8 - 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp chopped cilantro
  • 2 tsp fresh squeezed lime juice

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add chickpeas, smoked and sweet paprika, cumin, and salt. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring often so the chickpeas are well coated with the spices. Add cilantro, toss well and continue cooking for another 3 minutes. Set aside
  2. Mash the avocado with 1-1 1/2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice and 1/8-1/4 tsp salt. Mix it until smooth
  3. To prepare the sauce, whisk all the ingredients together until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use
  4. To assemble the tacos, spread the mashed avocado on each tortilla. Add the chickpeas, tomatoes, cabbage, and corn. Drizzle with yogurt sauce and sriracha or green dragon sauce, if using.
