These chili lime spiced air fryer chickpeas are super cripsy ( much crispier than chickpeas cooked in the oven), healthy and Weight watchers friendly too!
HOW TO MAKE SUPER CRIPSY AIR FRYER CHICKPEAS
Before you get started you want to make sure the chickpeas are rinsed and drained. Then pat them dry with paper towels.
Now we need to add the seasonings to the chickpeas. The seasonings we’re going to use are: chili powder, cumin, lime zest and salt.
You really could use any seasonings you like, though!
Dump all the seasonings and the chickpeas into a bowl and mix.
To prep the air fryer, you want to make sure and line the bottom of the air fryer with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
Now we can dump the chickpeas into the air fryer and cook at 400F for 17 minutes.
Be sure to open the basket and shake the chickpeas every few minutes for even cooking.
To keep these air fryer chickpeas crispy, let them cool completely and store in a zip-top bag.
