2 cans (15 oz) Chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans, drained, rinsed and blotted dry)
3-4 tsp Chili powder
2 tbsp Olive oil
1 tbsp (plus 1 tsp) Lime juice
3/4 tsp Sea salt
1-2 tsp Cumin
Pinch Dried herbs (your choice or chopped fresh cilantro)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray it with cooking spray.

Spread chickpeas out in a single layer over the foil. Once oven is preheated, bake chickpeas for 45-50 minutes, stirring and flipping every 15 minutes or so.

Near the end of the chickpeas’ cooking time, combine oil, chili powder, lime juice, sea salt, and cumin in a medium bowl. Start with a low amount of the chili powder and cumin and then add more to taste. Whisk to mix.

When chickpeas are done, let them cool for just a minute before pouring them into the oil mixture. Stir to coat all the chickpeas well. Eat immediately, or store in an airtight container (after cooling completely) to eat later.
