I made this for weekday lunches. I sent my husband’s to work with him with a tortilla, some shredded lettuce, and a little salsa.
For mine, I shredded a big bowl full of lettuce and topped the lettuce with some roasted corn and these Chickpeas. It was awesome! I even ate mine cold.
Try my homemade Taco Seasoning. I love the taste and fresh fragrance that it has!

I’ve made a curried version of these, but love the idea of nacho flavored chickpeas. Thanks for linking up to Real Food Fridays 🙂
CONGRATS!!! Your Nacho Roasted Chickpeas has been featured on Nibbles By Nic, Munching Mondays this week 🙂
Oh excellent! Another way to enjoy these tasty morsels. Thanks Debi. I think I may forgo the cilantro however. Not a fan. Maybe basil instead? What do you think! Love the other ingredients…including the #cheese! I tried the link for the #TacoSeasoning, but it wasn’t active. Love to know those ingredients! 🙂
Thanks, Kc! I think you’ll love these. nice and savory. Basil would be great! So would fresh oregano. I didn’t used to like cilantro either. But, now I grow it in the backyard and it tastes so much better than the store-bought stuff. The link in the “words” section of the post is active, but the link in the recipe card is one you’d have to copy and paste. Or, this should be an active link: http://lifecurrentsblog.com/homemade-taco-seasoning/
thanks again! 🙂
I adore roasted chickpeas and have tried a variety of different spice combos. Yours sounds positively addicting…a “must-try” for sure!
