Smoky roasted chickpeas

Stand-by. This is your new go-to snack. Forget the potato chips because these crunchy little wonders will steal your heart and taste buds. You can soak and cook your own chickpeas for a more economical treat, or you can go easy and quick with canned ones! Just make sure you rinse all that extra salt off before you bake them! Enjoy!

Smoky roasted chickpeas:

15 oz can of garbanzo beans/ chickpeas

1/2 tsp smoked chipotle seasoning

1/4 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp olive oil or olive oil cooking spray

sprinkle of salt

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. In the meantime, drain and rinse the chickpeas very well. Allow to dry or pat dry with a paper towel. Spray your baking sheet with cooking spray or olive oil, and lay out the chickpeas in a single layer. Sprinkle with seasonings and a bit more olive oil to coat well and toss with hands until well distributed. Bake at 450 for 40 minutes, making sure to check and shake the pan after 30 minutes to make sure they don't burn. Remove from oven and enjoy! They are crunchy and delicious! Not to mention healthy! Ditch the chip habit!
