Recently I confessed my love for sweet foods. Well today I am confessing my other love: spicy foods. Mmmmm… the spicier the better, I always say! I haven’t met a jalapeño pepper I didn’t like. Hot sauces and salsas are my friends. I joke that I like a little pain with my food. I’m only slightly kidding when I say that.

A while back I was looking for spicy snacks that didn’t require a trip down the chip aisle. After seeing a recipe for roasted garbanzo beans, I decided to give it a try, adding my own spicy twist.

Spicy Crunchy Garbanzo Beans
Ingredients
1 cup of dried chick peas/garbanzo beans
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp red cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp sea salt
Dash of cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp of cinnamon sugar (optional)

First step is to soak the dried beans overnight in water.

The next day, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Drain the beans and pat dry with a paper towel.

Put beans in a large plastic brag and add vegetable oil. Shake to cover beans with the oil.

Add all seasonings to the bag. Shake again to cover.
Place beans on a baking sheet. I lined my pan with parchment paper to minimize cleanup.

Bake for 45 minutes. Remove pan from oven. You can sample the beans (be careful- they are hot) to see if additional seasonings are needed.

Store beans in an airtight container. They will easily keep for a week- assuming they last that long!

XOXO,
