Ingredients for a spicy chickpeas snack
Super simple ingredients


  • Preheat your oven to 400°
  • Rinse and dry your chickpeas – I spread them out and blot with use paper towel, then allow them to air dry for a few minutes.
  • Place the chickpeas in a bowl, and add 1 tbsp of olive oil. Gently toss, adding a little extra oil if needed.
  • Cover a baking tray with parchment, spread the chickpeas out and put in the oven to roast for 20-30 minutes, shaking the pan to rotate every 10 minutes.
  • Remove the chickpeas from the oven when they are golden and slightly darkened, dry and crispy on the outside, and soft in the middle.
  • Pour them back into your bowl, and immediately scatter over the packet of Cajun Swamp Root Dip. Stir to combine evenly.
  • Serve while the chickpeas are still warm and crispy. They will gradually lose their crispiness as they cool, becoming deliciously chewy. I often store in a ziplock bag, to be able to re-shake any spices that have settled.

For orders over $60, we offer free ground shipping to a single delivery physical address in the contiguous United States (shipping to PO Boxes incurs a $5 surcharge). For all shipping, we use the best solution available for your address, and get your order out as fast as we can. We will never take longer than 3 business days to process your order and prepare it for shipment, and if you pay the premium for overnight shipment we strive (but do not guarantee) to prepare it and put it in the carrier’s hands within 24 hours. Very occasionally, we may experience delays due to supply chain constraints or other forces beyond our control. If we are not able to ship your order within five days of receipt, we will contact you to explain the timeline and offer you a refund if you prefer. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold individual orders for future ship dates.

We also provide the ability to break your order into multiple shipments and enter individual shipping addresses for those.  Please note that the free shipping offer applies to each individual address, so you would need to spend more than the minimum in each separate shipment to qualify for free shipping.
