Buffalo Chickpea Wraps take everything you love about buffalo wings and wraps them into a healthy and delicious vegetarian wrap complete with blue cheese and all the trimmings.

I was never a huge fan of buffalo sauce until I met my husband who comes from a family obsessed with buffalo sauce. They seriously order 2-3 sides of it any time we go out to eat, regardless of what they order. It's a pretty universal dipping sauce for them and I have to admit, I have fully jumped on the bandwagon. It tastes good on almost everything. The unfortunate part is that it is normally paired with things that aren't so good for the waistline. You know what I mean - wings, fries, poppers, and more. To combat this, lately I have been thinking about other ways to use our beloved buffalo sauce and fell in love with these vegetarian Buffalo Chickpea Lettuce Wraps.

Plus they couldn't be easier to make. All it takes is a quick trip to the saute pan with onions and garlic and then a good swim in a bath of buffalo sauce. Now you could even cook this in the microwave if were pressed for time. I won't tell anyone.
