    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.

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…

    I love hummus as a healthy snack.  What’s great is that it is so common and popular now it doesn’t feel like an odd thing to have at any party.  I’ve even seen it at parties for things like the super bowl now!  It is so versatile, you can vary up the dip itself like this one or provide a wide variety of what you dip in it like carrots, crackers, celery, etc.  Roasted Red Pepper is one of the most common varieties out there; likely because it makes for such a great flavor combination. Not only can you use it as a dip, you can spread hummus on sandwiches…
