Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Roasted Chickpeas are seasoned with taco spices and baked to crunchy perfection. You only need three ingredients to make this delicious and easy snack recipe!

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (15 ounce each) garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons taco seasoning

Instructions

  1. Drain and rinse chickpeas. Peel by pinching the skins off each chickpea. In a large bowl, add chickpeas, olive oil and taco seasoning. Mix completely and pour onto a large, foil lined, baking sheet.
  2. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. Stir every ten minutes. Remove and cool completely. Best eaten on day one! Store in an airtight container if desired.

Notes

  • It's a simple process of peeling the chickpeas and tossing them with olive oil and seasoning. Then you spread them out on a baking sheet and roast them in the oven until brown and crunchy.
  • For BEST spicy roasted chickpeas, do not skip the peeling! Pinching off the thin skin of each legume only takes an extra couple of minutes and the results are well worth it. The skins contain a lot of moisture which can prevent chickpeas from getting crunchy.
  • After peeling, I recommend giving them a good pat down with a paper towel, too. The drier your chickpeas are before roasting, the crunchier they will be.
  • One more secret to perfect roasted chickpeas: stir them every 10 minutes. Moving them around frequently as they bake helps the chickpeas cook evenly without overbrowning on one side.
