Recipe: Crunchy Blue Corn Chickpea Tacos

2.) Spray a cooking pan with olive oil & set aside.
3.) In a large bowl, whisk soy sauce, lime juice, and taco seasoning together.
4.) Add chickpeas to bowl, tossing until well-coated.
5.) Place chickpeas on pan in an even layer, spray lightly with oil, & bake for 20-25mins.
6.) Remove from oven, assemble tacos (lettuce first!), & serve.

(recipe from allrecipes.com)

2 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. black pepper, freshly ground
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp cayenne powder
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

**My family LOVED this recipe!  I did not miss the meat at all!  Chick peas are becoming my new favorite!!  This is a fast easy meal to make especially if you make the seasoning ahead of time.
