A vegetarian alternative to this Mexican favorite. My parents are a little leary of my non-meat dishes, but they love Mexican food. And this was a big hit. I was happy...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large fry pan, heat oil over medium heat.
  2. Cook the onion, celery, red or green pepper, jalapeno, and garlic until softened.
  3. Add garbanzo beans, spices, and a couple tsp of salsa.
  4. Stir until heated through.
  5. I like to fit the taco shells in a baking pan, spoon in filling evenly into the shells and bake in a 300°F oven for 5 minutes or so.
  6. It helps the shells from falling apart when you take the first bite.
  7. Remove from oven and top with your favorite toppings.

This recipe is awesome! The only variation I made was to use about a cup of Salsa. My son and I are being vegetarians for 21 days and this is one recipe that is going to carry beyond. Thanks!

These are REALLY FABULOUS!!! The flavors really ROCK and the garbanzos are a greattttttttt substitute for the meat in tacos!!!! I love the addition of cumin, because it is one of my most favorite spices!! And the coriander was also a very nice addition :-) I topped these bad boys with vegan cheese (non-dairy), some hot salsa, and shredded lettuce and a small amount of tomato!!!

This was very good and all three of our children ate it. It was quick, inexpensive, and certainly on the repeat list.
