Tacos are a great way to get your Little Chef involved in the kitchen and excited to make healthier choices as well. We love these quick vegetarian chickpea tacos as a weekday dinner.

DIRECTIONS

PREHEAT A LARGE PAN OVER MEDIUM HEAT. ADD OLIVE OIL AND SWEET POTATOES. COOK FOR 3-5 MINUTES, STIRRING EVERY FEW MINUTES. ADD REMAINING INGREDIENTS AND ABOUT 1/4 CUP WATER. REDUCE HEAT TO LOW AND COVER. COOK UNTIL POTATOES ARE TENDER. SERVED BEST WITH CABBAGE SLAW MIX AND TOASTED CORN TORTILLAS.

*TIP: CUT SWEET POTATO TO THE SAME SIZE AS THE CHICKPEA BEANS SO THEY COOK QUICKLY AND EVENLY.

*optional: add shredded cabbage and red onion as a crunchy topping.
