There's several which look similar and they are not all Acacia.

Pithecellobium flexicaule is similar but the leaves look to be more closely attached to the stem.
Sophora secundiflora .. the leaves don't look to have much of a stem attaching them to the main stem but you might know what the seed pods looked like.
Could it be Desert Ironwood, Olneya tesota?
