Buffalo Chickpea Tacos with Homemade Ranch Sauce

I've had this recipe on my "to try" Pinterest board for a while. It's a healthier version of the taco, but it's also a more fun way to eat buffalo-fill-in-the-blank-salad. Coating foods in buffalo sauce has been popular for a while now and the spiciness of the buffalo sauce adds a nice heat to traditional salad. 

Recipe adapted from My Darling Vegan.

-2 cups chickpeas
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-1/4 cup buffalo sauce
-Romaine Lettuce
-Green Onion

Ranch Sauce
-1/4 cup sour cream
-2 tablespoons ranch seasoning

In a small bowl combine the sour cream and ranch seasoning. Set aside.

In a skillet heat the olive oil and saute the chickpeas until golden. Remove from the heat and coat the chickpeas with the buffalo sauce.

Spoon a generous amount of chickpeas into each romaine lettuce leaf. Drizzle with ranch sauce and top with chopped green onions.  

 I thought these were really good, we had more than enough chickpeas to make 8 or 9 tacos. Even then I ended up eating some of the leftover buffalo chickpeas in a salad. The heat from the buffalo sauce paired well with the coolness of the ranch sauce.
