Chipotle Chickpea Salad
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 tomato, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
1 green onion, chopped
1 to 2 teaspoons chipotle spice blend, to taste *
1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice, to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1. In a bowl, combine chickpeas, tomato, avocado, and green onion.
2. Dressing: In another bowl, whisk together chipotle spice blend, lime juice, and oil.
3. Pour dressing over the bean mixture; stir gently to coat. Serve immediately or refrigerate for later use. Good served over spinach or rice.
* I use a chipotle spice mix that includes chipotle powder, smoked paprika, and dried red pepper. It is smoky tasting and not overly spicy.
