I had my blender out last week making lots of smoothies, a few snacks and other yummy treats. (Like this one minute ice cream.) I always seem to use my blender in “spurts.” When it’s out- I use it all the time, but as soon as I put it back into the cabinet, it stays there for the several weeks. Is that just me, or does anyone else do this?
Anyway, since it was still out, I wanted to do a little recipe experimenting. The kids love to snack on hummus and I wanted to test out an idea to make a shortcut hummus recipe. (Not that hummus is difficult to make- did you catch my spice white bean hummus recipe from a few weeks ago? Hubby devoured that one; kids barely got any, lol!)
This new recipe turned out really good! All I did was combine the garbanzo beans, a bit of Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing, a spoonful of raw red bell pepper and a pinch of Turmeric in my blender. This Hummus was a hit with everyone! Not spicy at all and even had a touch of sweetness from the red bell pepper and dressing.
Tacos make a frequent appearance on the dinner menu at our house. They’re so simple to throw together and everyone likes them. Since I’d made a double batch of this hummus, I had a great idea for a fun twist on Taco night. Mediterranean style chicken tacos!
My secret for getting these tacos on the table in just a few minutes is using Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken and TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas. The Tortillaland tortillas come uncooked, but they heat up on the stovetop in about a minute and taste so much better than the ready to eat ones!
Mediterranean Chicken Tacos
- 1 14 oz. can garbanzo beans, drained (Keep the liquid)
- 2 tbsp. diced red bell pepper
- 1/3 cup Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing
- 1/2 cup reserved Liquid from beans

- optional: sliced black olives (I intended to add olives, but my jar of olives mysteriously disappeared!)
- 8 TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas
