I feel a little guilty because I have been making these Taco Seasoned Chickpeas for a couple of years now. A few months ago, I was teaching a cooking class in Indianapolis and had these on the menu and when they got rave reviews I served them on a build your own taco bar when we had friends over in June.

Because of all the positive feedback and so many people asking for my Taco Seasoned Chickpeas recipe in person, I thought it was time I share the recipe here online!
