These chipotle lime chickpeas are a healthy, addictive snack. I can't stop eating these whenever I make this recipe!

Roasted chickpeas are an addictive, high protein snack that taste great with so many different seasonings. My savory roasted chickpeas recipe is one of my most popular posts, and this chipotle lime version is just as delicious. A half cup of cooked chickpeas has almost 8 grams of protein, which is much higher than most snack foods. Leave them in the oven until they’re nice and crispy. You can store them in an airtight container for several days, but you may want to put them under the broiler for a minute to get them crunchy again.

This recipe costs a total of $.61, or $.20 per half cup serving. I start with dried chickpeas, which are much cheaper than the canned version. They cost $.17 per cup when you start with dry beans, but they’re $.50 or more per cup when you buy the canned version.

    1. Christine, for best results, follow the instructions on your package of dried chickpeas. They typically need to be soaked overnight, then simmered for about an hour.

  1. Annemarie,
    Yum! I cooked up a bag of chick peas the other day, and conveniently froze the excess in 2 cup portions!
    This looks terrific. Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Kirsten! You’re definitely a freezer expert, so I’m not surprised you froze them in 2-cup portions.
