Chickpea Fajita Tacos

These spicy, scrumptious chickpeas fajita tacos are everything and more I had hoped they would be. Warm, sautéed onions and peppers pair so perfectly with the texture of chickpeas drenched in Mexican spices. The addition of limey slaw and creamy cilantro yogurt makes these plant-based tacos out of this world bomb, not to mention heart-healthy. Don’t forget the hot sauce!
