Spicy Chick Peas by MexFoodJournal

This side dish made with garbanzo beans, carrots and onion takes just over 20 minutes to prepare if you already have the guajillo chile salsa prepared. Garbanzos and guajillo chiles are a great combination, packed with flavor but not too spicy. It is delicious served hot or cold.


  • 2 cups cooked garbanzo beans
  • 2 cup medium carrots diced about 1
  • 1 cup medium white onion diced about 1
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • ¼ cup of parsley chopped finely
  • ¼ cup guajillo chile salsa
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt to taste
