Avocado Buffalo Chickpea Salad Wraps


Hi it’s me, your fairy lunch godmother here to bring you one of the easiest, most satisfying, and absolutely delicious lunch recipes that only takes 10 minutes to make: BUFFALO CHICKPEA SALAD WRAPS.

If you know me, you know I’ll add hot sauce to pretty much anything. What you may not know is that I’ve recently become low key obsessed with adding buffalo sauce to recipes (aka this buffalo mac & cheese and these tuna (or chicken!) stuffed bell peppers). That’s right, spicy, tangy buffalo sauce somehow has my heart.

The idea for these amazing buffalo chickpea salad wraps came out of this newfound love. We’re not just making wings here, people! This amazing wrap is loaded with veggies and protein thanks to chickpeas and my go-to siggi’s yogurt. The yogurt also adds the perfect creamy, cooling balance to your fav buffalo sauce, and the whole thing is wrapped up with fresh, crunchy veggies.

I’ve included tons of delicious ways to customize your wraps, plus fun new ways to eat the buffalo chickpea salad! I know you’ll love this one.

Ingredients in these buffalo chickpea salad wraps

These delicious buffalo chickpea wraps have over 13g of protein per serving and use super simple ingredients but are packed with flavor and crunch. Here’s what you’ll need to make them:

  • Chickpeas: the base of the filling in these wraps is made with a can of chickpeas, which provides a boost of protein.
  • Veggies & produce: you’ll be mixing your mashed chickpeas with shredded carrot, diced celery, cilantro and red onion. The perfect pairing with that buffalo flavor!
  • For the dressing: here’s the fun part – you’ll mix a couple of tablespoons of your favorite buffalo sauce with siggi’s plain yogurt for a creamy, spicy balance that takes the chickpea salad to the next level. Siggi’s yogurt adds yet another great boost of protein!
  • For the wraps: you’ll want to use any 8-inch tortillas you’d like (including gluten or grain free), and you’ll wrap up the salad with fresh spinach, avocado and sliced red onion. SO GOOD.

Customize your wraps

  • Add extra heat: if you love spice like I do, feel free to add another tablespoon of buffalo sauce and/or use a spicy buffalo sauce.
  • Mix in more veggies: dice some bell pepper to fold into the salad, or add slices of them into the wrap!
  • Choose your protein: these wraps would also be delicious with cooked, cubed tofu, cooked, shredded chicken, or even canned tuna!

Delicious ways to serve this buffalo chickpea salad

I absolutely love rolling up the buffalo chickpea salad with veggies in tortilla wraps, but feel free to try these other ways to serve the salad!

  • Collard wrap: for a low carb, grain & gluten free option, roll up all of the salad ingredients in a collard wrap or lettuce wrap! Get all of my tips for making collard wraps here.
  • Bread: of course, pile the chickpea salad high with veggie toppings on your go-to bread for a heartier meal. I love a good seedy sandwich bread, especially my homemade recipe.
  • Chips & crackers: because scooping salads with chips is trending right now (as it should be) enjoy the buffalo chickpea salad as a dip by serving it with tortilla chips or my paleo crackers!
