Buffalo chickpeas are great on their own, but when you stuff them inside bread, they're even better. Not only are these pita pockets delicious, they're downright easy to make. Chickpeas are tossed with a spicy Buffalo sauce and then stuffed in a pita pocket with kale and cucumber. A creamy avocado-lime dressing tops it all off.
