Sunday Small Bites~Chickpeas

This is our last Sunday Small Bite. We have made appetizers with everything from Ginger to Potatoes. 19 weeks, 19 surprise ingredients, tons of great recipes. I'll post a round up tomorrow.
Our final ingredient is Chickpeas.

I really wanted to find something that might fit in this new eating 'plan' (shun the word diet). It has to taste good and have a little kick to it, or I won't be tempted away from the chips and salsa. Believe me this is just the ticket!
Cajun Roasted Chickpeas
2 cups canned garbanzo beans, rinsed, drained and patted dry
1 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp Cajun Spice
1/2 tsp golden brown sugar
Coarse salt to taste
Preheat oven to 400°
Coat a baking sheet with no-stick spray and set aside (or use your Silpat).
Toss garbanzo beans with Cajun Spice and brown sugar in a small bowl. Mix well. Pour beans in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until crisp and golden. Add just a sprinkle of coarse salt.
Zow~These are great! They are spicy with a little crunch. Just a few will curb that temptation for chips and salsa, warm cheese dip, with a icy cold margarita, salt on the rim. (OK, Not really!)
Now, let's see what small bites we get from the other 'nibblers'.

Y'all enjoy!
