  1. Combine all the filling ingredient sin a large skillet.

  2. Mash the chickpeas with a potato masher or fork. Don't over smash them. Just enough to have mostly large pieces.

  3. Heat the mixture in the skillet. If the oil cooks out, ad vegetable broth to continue cooking. But only add 1 tbsp. at a time. If you add too much, you'll end up with refried chickpeas.

  4. When the mixture is fully heated and everything is mixed together, use it to build your tacos in place of meat.
