Feeling stuck on what to make for dinner tonight?

Below are the instructions – these are fast and easy, yay!
The whole meal came together in about 15 minutes, and it was a really delicious and satisfying weeknight dinner.

Quick Chickpea Kale Tacos with Spicy Yogurt and Smoked Scamorza Cheese
6 small organic GMO-free corn tortillas
1 can organic chickpeas
1 head organic Lacinato kale
1 small white onion
6 thin slices of smoked scamorza cheese
1/2 cup strained plain full-fat Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons grass-fed butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Favorite hot sauce, to taste
Pink Himalayan salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Slice onion into half moons. Rinse kale, remove leaves from ribs, and pat dry.
Chop kale into thin ribbons. Rinse chickpeas in a strainer.
Mix yogurt with hot sauce and salt, to taste, “whipping” it.
Note: You don’t have to strain the yogurt yourself, just look for a brand, like Fage, that’s already strained, so it’s nice and thick, similar to sour cream.
Thinly slice cheese.
Bring olive oil to medium heat in pan and add onion. Sauté for a few minutes, until it starts to soften.
Add kale and chickpeas and sauté for 5 more minutes, until chickpeas are a little browned.
In the last few minutes of cooking, add butter and stir. Allow to cook for a couple more minutes.
Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Stir.
In a dry pan, warm your tortillas over medium-high heat.
When tortillas are almost hot and a little brown on both sides, lay a slice of cheese on each one so it melts a bit.
Use a spatula to remove tortillas from pan and arrange on plates.
Serve chickpeas and kale in a bowl at the center of the table.
Assemble your tacos at the table, family style.
You’ll have your cheese on each taco, then add a few spoonfuls of veggies and top off with the spicy yogurt.
