Spicy Chickpea Snack

18 Sep

They are little. They are spicy. They are healthy. They are cheap.

These spicy chickpeas make a great healthy satisfying snack.  They are super easy to make.  My recipe is just for one small batch, but I recommend doubling or even tripling  it so you’ll have plenty to last you a few days.

Spicy Chickpea Snack

  • 1 – 16oz can organic chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Tony Chachere’s Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • dash of black pepper

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and thoroughly spray with a non-stick spray.  Drain and rinse your chickpeas.  Mix all ingredients in a bowl then evenly spread on the baking sheet.  Bake for 40 minutes, turning every 10 minutes.  Enjoy!

Seriously, I guesstimated the measurements of the seasonings.  Feel free to adjust according to your preference.  Obviously if you like hot, hot spicy then add more Tony’s seasoning.  Also, most recipes for these baked chickpeas call for olive oil.  I found no need to fatten these guys up.  Mine turned out great without using any oil.  Yay!

note to self:  Add chickpeas to the grocery list
