Chickpeas are a good and healthy snack. Sometimes when I make these, before putting them in the oven I mix them in hot sauce and put the spices on them, then put the chickpeas in the oven. When they are done I usually put some more on there. They are absolutely a delicious snack to try out. I make these every time I can get them, plus they are really good in salad too.
