Spicy Roasted Chipotle Chickpeas

Spicy Roasted Chipotle Chickpeas

Are you looking for a healthy, crunchy snack with a little spicy kick? These spicy little chickpeas are just the thing. I used chipotle chili powder to add some heat, along with some heart healthy olive oil. Then I roasted them until they were very crunchy. Be careful when your roasting these little guys though. I checked mine a few times during the cooking process, to shake the cookie sheet and move them around so they would brown evenly, and a few of them popped like popcorn. They could burn your hands or arm if your not careful.
