One Word: ADDICTING!
I saw this recipe over at Heather’s Dish and knew that I had to give it a whirl! Man am I glad that I did! These are simply amazing! I can say that they are going to be a staple in my home starting ummmm…. now.
I am needing energy like it is no one’s business because I have been feeling so drained and I know that a combo of protein and fiber can pack a powerful punch so this is exactly what the doctor ordered for this girl!
The only bad thing about these– be careful, I burned my lip tasting one fresh out of a 400° oven. Smart, I know.
I have a feeling that these bad boys will slowly be taking over my life. They are super simple and you can make them in a snap. Seriously, I made them with exactly zero energy in my body. I think they would be great tossed on a salad, in a pasta of some sort, as a protein/fiber source at any time of the day in a bowl or hand. Whatever floats your boat. As of right now, I am just going to snack on them out of my hand, I like things simple. No cleanup necessary.
Fajita Spiced Roasted Chickpeas
What you’ll need:
- 2 15-oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 2/3 Tbsp Hot chili powder
- 1/3 Tbsp salt
- 1/3 Tbsp paprika
- 1/3 Tbsp sugar
- 1/3 Tbsp onion powder
- 1/3 Tbsp garlic powder
- 1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 2/3 tsp cayenne pepper (because I like it hot!)
- juice of one lime
What to do: Drain and rinse the chickpeas and make sure they dry out. Toss them in the olive oil after they are dry. In a separate bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients/spices. Once all the dry have been combined and gotten a chance to mingle, toss them over the chickpeas that have already been tossed in olive oil. Pop them into a 400° oven for 40 minutes, tossing them at every 5-10’ish minutes. Your nose will know when they need tossed, that is the good thing. They smell so great you can’t forget them in the oven and burn them! Once they are out of the oven, squeeze the juice of one lime to add a fun punch of flavor! ENJOY!
