Crunchy, spicy, taco seasoned Roasted Chickpeas make a delicious snack!
I love it when a healthy snack fills me up. I mean, I love carrots and grapes, but they just don’t make me full! And nuts? Love them too but I can’t seem to eat just one servings’ worth (which is what, 6 nuts?).
But chickpeas? They are so good. Not only in hummus, but as a crunchy roasted snack. Have you ever roasted your veggies for dinner? It makes them sweeter and delicious. I love to roast my chickpeas to the ultimate crunch, almost till they are burnt! I don’t like any “chew” to be left in them. Sprinkling them with taco seasoning makes them all the more addictive. And, like I said, they are filling too. Thanks to all the fiber I can eat a serving of these and feel satisfied.
Just like with hummus, I prefer to peel my chickpeas. If you don’t, you’ll find the skins come off in the oven, and they take all the good seasoning with them! This is a great job for little hands to help!
