Number of Servings: 12


    Two 13-ounce cans chickpeas
    1/4 olive oil
    1 tablespoon smoked paprika (sweet or hot, depending on your taste)
    Coarse salt
    Chili Powder to taste
    Lime juice to taste


Drain the chickpeas and set on paper towels in a colander to dry thoroughly. (This can be done 1 day in advance.)
Heat the oil in a large pan (preferably cast iron) to 350°F, or until the oil makes bubbles around a single chickpea when you drop it in.
Add the chickpeas in batches so the pan doesn’t crowd. Fry each batch for about 5 minutes until the chickpeas darken and are crunchy.
Remove the chickpeas from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain well over a colander or sieve.
Toss the chickpeas with the smoked paprika,salt, chili powder and lime juice adding more to taste.
Serve right away while still warm and crisp.
