Tacos are something I could eat every day. They are so versatile and you can make them extremely healthy. While we love tacos with some meat, we also change it up a notch every now and then. And these spicy pineapple roasted chickpea tacos are just the perfect recipe for these kinds of days.

I like to make our own taco shells, just because they are so easy to make and much better than the ones I can find in the stores here. But you know, if you’re in a hurry or feeling lazy, those are completely fine 🙂 If you feel like making your own, I have a recipe for them here.

Summer is just around the corner, although it’s feeling more like the beginning of Spring over here with a ton of rain, wind and temperature much lower than I’d like right now. But, I’m looking forward to warmer weather and I’m keeping my fingers crossed they come sooner rather than later. When they do I’m ready with these recipes.

We like to make really easy and quick dinners in the Summer because we tend to hang out outside most of the day and want to stay out as long as possible. And this recipe is extremely quick. While you’re roasting the chickpeas in the oven you can prepare the avocado spread takes a minute or two and then a few minutes to chop up pineapple, peppers, and onions, and parsley for the salsa.
