P.S. I jazzed my Sriracha Chickpea Salad up a bit with cilantro and lemon juice, but if you only have mayo and sriracha on hand, this still makes a really easy and delicious chickpea salad.

Ingredients

Sriracha Chickpea Salad

  • 1 15oz. can chickpeas ($0.59)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise ($0.55)
  • 1.5 Tbsp sriracha (or to taste) ($0.09)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro ($0.25)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice ($0.04)
  • 1/8 tsp salt ($0.01)

Wrap Ingredients

  • 2 large flour tortillas ($0.48)
  • 2 cups spinach ($0.50)
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced or shredded ($0.11)
  • 1/2 bell pepper ($0.75)

Instructions

  • Drain the chickpeas, then add them to a bowl with the mayonnaise, sriracha, cilantro, lemon juice, and salt. (You may want to start with less sriracha and add more to taste if you are sensitive to heat). Mash the chickpeas until they are fairly broken down and the dressing ingredients have combined.
  • To build the wraps, place the tortillas on a work surface and add half of the spinach, carrot sticks, bell pepper, and sriracha chickpea salad to each one. Fold the sides in toward the center, then roll from the bottom up, like a burrito. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.

Notes

You can use any vegetables that you have on hand. I happened to have carrots and bell pepper, but you could use cucumber, shredded cabbage, avocado, tomatoes, or anything else you'd like.
