Tajin Crispy Snacking Chickpeas

Tajin is LITERALLY good on everything and I’m borderline obsessed with it right now. It has a zesty lime flavor that just wakes up any dish so I figured it would make a bland chickpea really pop! Tajin can be found at most grocery stores in the spice isle.

  • 15oz can Chickpeas/garbanzo beans
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp tajin
  • Pinch salt
  • Fresh lime zest


  1. Drain your chickpeas in a strainer. Pour onto a paper towel lined baking sheet and continue to pat them dry until they’re totally dry. This will create a crispier snack. If you have the time allow them to air dry for an hour or two.
  2. Once the chickpeas are dried, toss them in a bowl with the avocado oil and your tajin. Toss well until the chickpeas are fully coated.
  3. In a single layer, place the chickpeas in the basket of the air fryer and air fry at 400F for 15 minutes. After 10 minutes you can give the basket a shake.
  4. Taste for crispiness and saltiness. If you need to go an extra 5 minutes, then do so. Depending on how dry you get the chickpeas depends on how long they will take to get crispy.
  5. Remove from air fryer and put into a bowl if serving immediately or in an airtight container. I like to give them a final sprinkle of tajin, lime zest, and a pinch of salt right when they come out and are still warm.
