STEP 1 PREPARE TORTILLA BOWLS OR CUPS

- Once the tortillas are cooked, set aside to cool while preparing the rest of your ingredients. FBR IDEA: Gluten-free, allergy-friendly tortillas work nicely. The appetizer option is using Tostitos Scoops.
- Enjoy a tortilla size that fits your dinner party perfectly. If you don't have the Perfect Tortilla Pan you can use the back of a cupcake pan. You can also make mini homemade tortilla cups for individual portions. See the full recipe page for photos and details. Link Below
STEP 2 PREPARE CHICKPEA MIXTURE
- In a large mixing bowl, mash the chickpeas with a fork. Once the chickpeas are mashed, add FBR Southwest Chipotle Seasoning and lemon pepper seasoning. Stir to thoroughly mix ingredients together.
STEP 3 ADD REST OF SALAD INGREDIENTS IN LARGE MIXING BOWL and Gently Stir
- Divide the salad mixture among the tortilla bowls or tortilla cups.
- Top with sliced avocados. Drops of hot sauce if you like your Chickpea Salad spicy. Add extra Farr Better Oil-Free Mayonnaise on top to complete this masterpiece. Serve and enjoy!!

Add Salad Ingredients
into a large mixing bowl
Be sure to prep the vegetables that should be cleaned before use:
It’s a good idea to wash your cabbage, bok choy, and avocados. Even though they are a part of the “Clean 15” list, it’s a good idea to always wash your produce. While they are a part of the produce with the lowest levels of pesticide residue, it’s always a good practice to wash your produce.
The “Dirty Dozen” list for this recipe would include carrots and poblano pepper. Most importantly, you should try to buy organic and wash them really well.
Nearly 70 percent of the fresh produce sold in the U.S. contains residues of potentially harmful chemical pesticides, according to EWG’s analysis.

Step 2 Prepare Chickpea Mixture with Seasonings in Large Mixing Bowl
1 (15 oz) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas) drained and rinsed
In the large mixing bowl, mash the chickpeas with a fork.
If you have an allergy to soy or these beans, you can substitute with Cannelini Beans (white kidney beans) which will still give you another nice burst of flavor in this meal.
Add the next 2 seasonings to the mixing bowl.
1 tbsp FBR Southwest Chipotle Seasoning
1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
Once the chickpeas are mashed, and you added these 2 seasonings, mix together thoroughly.

2 cups shredded cabbage, pick one or combine to the equal recommended amount
Shredded Purple Cabbage
Shredded Green Cabbage

1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/2 cup poblano pepper seeded and diced

Prepare Black Olives:
Cut to your desired size with a knife or the Food Chopper Scissors.
If you are like me and love♥ black olives, the bigger the slice the better.
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
For instance, have you considered growing your own herb garden? This Herb Seed Pod Kit has been so much fun for us and saves us tons of money. There is less waste as you clip the cilantro as needed, not to mention, always fresh for the dish. Thank you Auntie Kitty♥!!
In addition, if you love the herb garden, you will definitely enjoy these Herb Scissors. You will want to use them all the time to cut any of your fresh herbs. It is very gentle on the leaves giving you a beautiful fragrant smell and savory flavor to your meals.
