Roasted Chipotle Chickpeas

Today is the start of March Madness. For me, its a time for snacking and watching games. Sometimes those games lead to stress which leads to more snacking. That means I need a snack I can just keep munching on that is healthy and flavorful. Roasted Chickpeas are the ultimate healthy snack that you can munch on all day.

Personally, I love a flavorful snack that isn’t sweet. Roasted Chickpeas make a really great canvas for flavor since on their own they are pretty bland. I have made them in a variety of styles in the past. You can go pretty basic or really experiment. My first batch years ago was focused on Mediterranean flavors. This time I wanted to go a different route.

My first ever batch of roasted chickpeas from a long time ago.

I really wanted to go with a smokey, spicy tex-mex flavor with this batch. To do that, I decided to use a variation of a fajita mix that I really like. I used cumin to provide that base flavor and then added chipotle powder. Chipotle is one of my favorite peppers. They are basically smoked jalapenos so they provide a little of both of those elements.
