Recipe Quickie [Taco-Style Chickpeas]

taco seasoned roasted chickpeas

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas
[Taco Style!]
preheat your oven to 400F
grab some garbanzos and rinse, drain, and pat dry
remove the chickpea skin that is prooobably already falling off your little nuggets already
lay flat on a baking sheet lined with a little bit of olive oil
season to taste with salt, pepper, cayenne, cumin, chili and garlic powder
set your timer for 30 minutes, toss em in the oven, and walk away =)

Serve them up taco-salad-style on a bed of greens with tomatoes, peppers, and all your favorite toppings [hellooooo guacamole!]  or pile em high in a taco shell with creamy re-fried beans and crunchy veggies!

See?  I told you this would be a quick one!
Today is one of my crazier days this week:  spin class, grocery shopping, and flailing around zumba followed by dinner and a movie.  *ahem* dinner and HUNGER GAMES!!!

Is anyone else nerding-out and seeing the movie tonight at midnight with me?

Pin It!

  5. These chickpeas look so very delicious.  I haven't yet tried them outside of hummus, but I think taco style would definitely be to my liking.
    I hope you enjoy your movie and dinner!

  11. Perfect!! I love roasted chickpeas. I make curried chickpeas to snack on all the time! But this is genius because I love making veggie taco salads! Would be a nice alternative to using Boca Meatless crumbles for a change :)

  15. Yum! One of my favorite vegan restaurants actually has a chickpea taco dish that I've been dying to recreate. This sounds like the perfect recipe for it! 
    Enjoy the movie! I can't wait to hear how you like it. (:

  19. I am heading to Kansas city tomorrow so no midnight movie for me :)  And as excited I am that Hunger Games opens tomorrow I waiting to see it.  This is one movie hubby and i agree on wanting to see and we will be going when the theatres are hopefully less crowded ;)

    I am looking forward to making this recipe.  I am trying to eat primarily vegetarian with only the occasional meat, poultry or fish.

  20. I used to do these ALL the time!  Must make them again soon.  I used garam masala and some other spices... I think really similar to yours.  We need to have a chickpea roast off when we hang out. :)

  22. I really wish I was seeing the movie at midnight tonight!  Think I could sneak out and be back before my kids even know?
