Roasted Chili Lime Chickpeas

Usually I'm a "sweets" kind of girl.

I've got what they would call a sweet tooth.

Salty or sweet you ask?  Sweet.


But you know what?

Every once in a while a "sweets" kind of girl needs a "salty" snack.

So guess what...

I made one.

And I'm going to share it with you.

Awkward one sided conversation...complete.

  1. This looks so good. I did not know that you could roast chick peas like that.

    1. Yes and they are fabulous! I think it might be my new go to snack!

  2. This looks like a dangerously addictive snack. I would not be able to keep my hands of it!

    1. You are completely right...SO addictive! Better chickpeas than addictive brownies though right? :)

  3. I love roasted chickpeas! I've never tried lime on them though, I'll have to do that next time; seems like such a great way to really wake up those spices

    1. I loved the lime on them! Those little chickpeas packed a lot of punch in the flavor department!
