  • 2 cans chickpeas drained, but un-rinsed
  • 1 can diced tomatoes salt-free
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp white miso paste
  • 2 tsp tahini
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2-3 shakes cumin
  • 2 tsp ancho chili pepper, ground
  • 2 tsp adobo
  • 2-3 tsp espazote
  • 1 cup chopped kale


  1. Put all of the ingredients into the food processor and pulse into a thick paste. (If it's too thick, add a tsp of water at a time until you reach a spreadable consistency.)

  2. Spread onto corn (or whole wheat) tortillas and drop another tortilla on top (tortilla sandwich style).

  3. Place onto a hot griddle, flipping occasionally, until the tortillas are as brown as you'd like.

  4. Serve warm, with salsa and lettuce.
