Addicting Roasted Chickpeas!
I have made these twice already in a week! They are super super addicting, I risked burning my tongue and fingers multiple times picking these up straight out of the oven. They are perfect as a snack, in tacos, on salads, and the best part is they are extremely easy. With only 5 ingredients (chickpeas, tajin, lime, olive oil, and cayenne) these babies take less than a minute to prepare and under 30 minutes in an oven to cook. Tajin is one of my favorite newish spices I have been using lately.
Information about the secret ingredient: Well it’s not actually too much of a secret in Mexico. Tajin is a mexican spice with a strong chili and lime flavor which is typically eaten on melon, mangos, or other fruit. I cannot get enough of these so I thought I would share my find with you.
Roasted Chili Lime Chickpeas:
1 Can of Chickpeas
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tajin
Juice from 1/2 a lime
Cayenne to taste
Directions: Preheat an oven to 375 degrees. Drain the chickpeas and rinse with water. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and toss to coat the chickpeas thoroughly. If you want a more subtle flavor use 1/2 tbsp of tajin and increase from there. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Serve/eat immediately as if you could resist ;)
