In food processor, combine chickpeas, onion and garlic; pulse until coarsely ground. Add mashed potatoes, 2 tbsp flour, 1 egg, Adobo seasoning and smoked paprika; pulse until blended. Stir in cheese. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Divide into 32 portions. Shape into oval balls; freeze for at least 1 hour or until firm.
