Spicy Roasted Chickpeas


1 15 ounce can chickpeas
1 1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (didn't use)
1/2 teaspoon paprika ( used smoked paprika)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Drain and rinse the chickpeas and dry on a paper towel and set aside.

In a medium size bowl combine all the spices and the olive oil. Toss the chickpeas in the spice mixture and spread the chickpeas on a lined baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes, remove- toss the chickpeas and cook for another 15-20 minutes. You want the chickpeas to be brown and crispy.
