  • 1/2 cup tahini (stir thoroughly to combine in the container before measuring)
  • 3 - 4 Tbsp. very warm water
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup Hood® Light Sour Cream
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. canola or olive oil, divided
  • 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 15-oz. cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 12 small corn or flour tortillas, toasted
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 2 cups fresh tomato salsa


  • STEP 1

    Place tahini in a medium mixing bowl. Add water and lemon juice and combine until smooth. Add 1/4 cup of sour cream at a time, combining until smooth. Add the garlic and salt and combine well. Add more water for a thinner sauce, if desired.

  • STEP 2

    Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove the onion mixture from the pan and keep warm in a bowl.

  • STEP 3

    Add remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan over medium heat. Add the beans, cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper and stir well. Cook for another 5 to 7 minutes or until warm.

  • STEP 4

    To serve, layer onion mixture, beans, salsa, and cilantro on each tortilla. Top with tahini sauce. Use any leftover sauce as a dip, in sandwiches, or tossed with warm pasta.
