Chickpea Salad Mexicali

Hey Party People!

So  happy we’re halfway through the week!

This is a short n sweet post as it’s now 10:30 and an hour past my bed-time.  I went to the 8:15pm Bikram class tonight and let me just say, that it was fantastic! I was feeling much stronger today than yesterday where I felt I was going to DIE!

Moving on.

Since I went to the 8:15 class, I decided to make a quick chickpea salad for dinner. Read: use up the remaining veggies in my fridge before they went bad, dump them into a pile of chickpeas, pour some salsa and cilantro on it and call it a day:

chickpeas with tomato, cucumber, red onion, avocado, and spinach with salsa and cilantro

But I also made some crisped-up tortilla’s to go along with it.  To me this was food-blogger redemption. Yeah, right.

This was just tortilla’s brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with parika and garlic bowder then put under the broiler for a few minutes until slightly crispy.

Anyway, there you have it folks Chickpea Salad and crisped up tortilla’s. And I call myself a food blogger. I think I need to make some improvements over here.  Maybe I should start have you calling out dishes and I’ll see if I can make a version of it, wouldn’t that be fun?

Start thinking on recipes- you have until this Friday to submit 🙂

Bon soir mes amis! A demain!
