There’s a good chance that you already have hummus on your list for your next tailgate, but how about go straight to the source and make some roasted chickpeas?  This is a great snack to grab a handful of or put on a tasty plate


  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas, or 1 (15 oz) can
  • 1½ tsp Olive oil
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Black pepper
  • ¾ tsp Chili powder
  • ¼ tsp Paprika
  • A dash of cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Pat the chickpeas dry between two paper towels and be sure to remove any loose skins.
  3. Pour the chickpeas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat and mist with olive oil. Use your hands or a spoon to toss the chickpeas. In a small bowl, combine the seasonings and whisk to combine. Sprinkle the mixture onto the chickpeas and toss to coat. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring the chickpeas at the 15 minute mark.
