I tend to eat a vegan diet, so I am not usually as skeptical as most. But I really questioned this. I was wrong. This was good.

These were very good. The garbanzo beans give an appealing flavor to the tacos that is a little different, but not to the point of being strange. Even my daughter who was skeptical, saying, "But I don't like beans!" cleaned her plate without being pushed. I'll be making them again frequently. Thank you!

I am amazed at how wonderful this filling is! I made it because I needed something quick and had everything on hand, but I never imagined it to be so delicious. The color, texture, and flavor are all right on. Thanks for posting this fabulous recipe!

Simple and delicious! I don't like the extra sodium in the canned juice, so I rinsed and drained the beans and then added some water. I sprinkled the beans with cayenne pepper, cumin, and chili powder before serving and used shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and onions, a shredded cheese blend, sour cream, and salsa for the toppings. Thanks for sharing!

I have made these at least 3 times now and they are SO tasty and quick to throw together for a delicious meal! I like to throw in a little adobo seasoning and cumin sometimes just for a twist. One time, (after the kids had gone to bed), I heated up just the leftover garbanzo beans and ate them without the taco shell, yummmm! Thank you so much for sharing *Lena*!

Great flavor and texture in enchiladas too! I added corn and black beans to this taco mixture and used it to make a rack of vegetarian enchiladas: a big hit among my carnivore family :-) Thanks so much!

I am not a vegetarian and I love my burger-filled tacos, but I also love garbonzos. I just made half the recipe and I enjoyed them so much, it won't be long before I use the other half package of taco seasoning and try the taco salad version. Thanks for posting a keeper *Lena*. Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09 .

The two vegetarians in the family really liked these (I didn't try them myself). I did fry a little garlic in a little oil first, before adding the rinsed and drained chickpeas. They were a bit dry so I added some water. They were a bit hard to mash, so they just got roughly mashe with the taco seasoning mix. I added one sliced green onion at the end. Easy and economical.

Seriously, great recipe. So simple and easy and tasty! My husband, 1yr old and 3yr old all ate it up in burritos! I really didn't miss the meat at all and my husband had no idea that he was eating garbanzo beans until I told him. Thank you so much for posting!

What a great recipe. It just doesn't get any easier than this for a quick and heathy treat. Hubby did not miss the meat at all and insists I make them again. I topped them with lettuce, tomatoes and chopped onions. WOW! Thanks for sharing *Leana*.
