How To Make Buffalo Chickpea Salad Wrap

how to make

1. Finely chop the onion and set aside. Wash and dry the cilantro, picking just the leaves, and chop finely. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.

Thinly slice lengthwise. Leave in the shell and flip cut side down until just ready to serve to preserve freshness.

Mince the garlic. Chop off the stem and slice the jalapeno in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds and veins and slice thinly crosswise.

2. Heat 2 tbsp/30ml on medium-high in a large skillet. Add the chickpeas. Cook for 2 minutes, swirling the pan regularly to distribute the oil and brown the chickpeas.

Reduce heat to medium heat and add the jalapeno, garlic, paprika, oregano, and cumin. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring to combine.

3. Add the broth and stir to pick up all the flavors from the bottom of the skillet. Cook until the liquid is reduced by more than half, about 3 minutes. Add salt, stir in, and adjust to taste. Set the chickpea mixture aside.

4. Heat a large cast iron pan or griddle over medium-low. Add about 1 tbsp/15ml oil, spreading around to evenly coat the pan.

Cook the tortillas 1 or 2 at a time for about 1 minute per side until just a little colored and crispy in spots.

Repeat with the remaining tortillas, adding more oil as needed.

5. Fill the tortillas with about 2 tbsp of the chickpea mixture. Add a few slices of avocado and about 1 tbsp of minced red onion. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice.

Fold the wrap over itself once or twice so that all of the ingredients are enclosed like a burrito. Wrap tightly in parchment paper or aluminum foil and serve immediately. 🙂

Assembling Suggestions

  • A generous serving of buffalo chickpea wrap is a delicious lunch or dinner to warm up on a cold day. Topped with sauce or without and served with a side of chips, carrots, mango black bean salad, or mango salsa, this flavorful wrap provides an opportunity to eat healthy and flavorful. For an added kick, try adding extra hot sauce or jalapenos!
  • For a complete meal, why not turn your buffalo chickpea wrap into a chickpea salad bowl? Simply layer your favorite leafy greens, such as arugula and romaine lettuce in a large bowl before adding your spicy chickpeas and diced tomatoes. Drizzle with your favorite dressing for the final finishing touch.
  • For people who have little ones at home, you can whip up these buffalo chickpea wraps for kids in no time at all! Just skip the jalapeño pepper and ground cayenne pepper for a milder version that is perfect for picky eaters. Serve each wrap on its own plate to add some colorful flair to lunchtime.

Pro Tips – Great Vegan or Plant-Based Meal Prep

If you would like to do bulk cooking for your meal prep, there are a few tips to follow:

  • Store all ingredients in separate containers. Assemble your wraps right before serving.
  • If you want to make the wraps ahead, you’d need to use other veggies such as iceberg lettuce, spinach…etc. Aside from avocados, which turn black. Pre-made wraps will last up to 3-4 days in the fridge before serving.
  • If you like crunchy chickpeas, you can cook your own chickpeas instead of using canned chickpeas. Soak dried chickpeas in water overnight or for 24 hours, then cook them on the stove until they are tender.
