Roasted Chickpeas


These Roasted Chickpeas are a great and healthy alternative to salted mixed nuts, crackers, chips, pretzels, salad topping and other munchies. They are great also as you can spice/season them pretty much with anything, make them sweet or salty, or both.  Pictured here is a spicy Mexican spin using chili powder and lime. Once you pop one little chickpea in your mouth, you just can't stop!
