CrockPot Salsa Chickpeas {Vegan, Slow Cooker}: This Week's Cravings {5-INGREDIENT MEALS}

Today's This Week's Cravings theme is 5-INGREDIENT MEALS. This chickpea dish makes a great change-of-pace from fish for Lent Fridays. I'm sharing one of our family's new favorite burrito, quesadilla and taco fillings, which can also be eaten as a side dish. The kids and I love these chickpeas. (The husband isn't a big fan of chickpeas, but he actually thinks these are "OK.")

CrockPot Salsa Chickpeas
Place all ingredients in your slow cooker and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours, until chickpeas reach desired tenderness. Serve as a side dish or on a Homemade Tortilla with desired toppings as tacos, burritos or

The Results
Fantastic! And so simple. I set this up when I went to bed and had chickpea filling ready in the morning to dole out for quesadillas at lunchtime. The kids and I LOVED it.
