And The Simple Steps For Tex-Mex Roasted Chickpeas–
Start by draining the chickpeas, the more liquid you can drain, the better the chickpeas will come out. If you want them crunchy, remove most of the liquid, via your strainer, and then place them on a kitchen towel, to fully dry them.
Gather your spices and olive oil. Most of these ingredients are probably already in your spice cabinet.
Once your chickpeas are drained add the spices and olive oil.
Then mix well, combining all of the spices and olive oil. Check to make sure all of the olive oil have olive oil on them, this will help them crisp up.
Then slip your baking pan into your air fryer.
