These Vegan Garlicky Chipotle Chickpeas are two things: Absolutely delicious, and yet another way to use my McCormick’s seasoning. And no, this isn’t a sponsored post. I just happen to heart this flavor! If you dig it too, check out my Garlicky Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries…
I had a great weekend. Well, a great and also deeply disturbing weekend. Went out with my friend Bethany on Saturday night which was just what I needed!
We went to the Viewhouse, a restaurant/bar on the south side of Denver, and we were planning to have a couple drinks and talk about how great our mancations are going (very popular thing these days, apparently!). We sat at the bar, with a beautiful view of the mountains, and proceeded to have a great night. We met this really nice guy who shared his bottle of wine with us and we three spent the evening talking and laughing and dancing and it was pretty great. It for sure got a little wilder than I had planned (I have this weakness for tequila shots, even though they’re nearly always a bad idea) but I needed it. I deserved it! (See how nice I’m being to myself?)
My weekend also took a disturbing turn the morning I was outside cleaning up dog poop. One of the pieces laying on the grass turned out not to be poop, but an enormous brown worm. I believe it was a tomato worm, and it was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. I literally screamed. I was convinced it had fallen out of my tree and at any moment hundreds more would rain down on me. I was pretty freaked out. I don’t even have any tomato plants so I don’t know what he was doing in my yard, but he was definitely not welcome there, so I checked him over the fence. I’m still grossed out by him, days later. I don’t how you gardener types deal with all these creepy crawlies! I took a short video of him, but I’m not going to post it. I like you guys too much to give you nightmares 😉
I made these chickpeas ages ago, and just never got around to sharing them. I’ve been rather lazy about cooking lately though, so it was time to post them. They’re really delicious and they make a wonderful, healthy snack!
- 2 cans chickpeas, well rinsed and dried
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 heaping tablespoon McCormicks Grill Mates Chipotle and Roasted Garlic seasoning
- Preheat oven to 400. Spread the chickpeas on a baking sheet and drizzle with the oil. Stir to make sure the oil is evenly distributed. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. You want them crisp and golden! Toss with the seasoning and salt to taste, and enjoy!
- Please make sure your chickpeas are fully dried before starting!
