These Buffalo Hot Sauce Roasted Chickpeas are going to change the way you think about roasted chick peas! While making a chickpea salad for lunch this week I set aside some chickpeas to roast. Usually I do plain salt and olive oil because I’m a sodium fiend at times. However, the hot sauce was out on the counter from the buffalo shrimp I had made the day before.I don’t understand my love affair with hot sauce, I really don’t. I am not a fan of really spicy foods, though you will find me trying them out time to time. I always think that too much heat can annihilate the flavor of a dish, obliterating any nuances that you might taste otherwise and just making your eyes and nose water in the process.

Hot sauce, however, is one of my favorite flavors in the world and it’s the actual flavor that I love and crave. I can do without the heat (I know, I know, it’s HOT sauce) but I’ll take the heat with the flavor.

How to Make Roasted Chickpeas

  • Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Place the chickpeas in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil until evenly coated.
  • Spread the chickpeas in an even layer on a large rimmed baking sheet and bake until they crisp, around 30 minutes.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and pour approximately 2 tbsp of hot sauce onto the chickpeas; stir to coat.
  • Place back into the oven for 3-4 minutes until the hot sauce has dried.
  • Repeat with another 2 applications of hot sauce or until the desired flavor has been reached.
  • Sprinkle with salt to taste.

Tips and Tricks for Roasting Chickpeas

  • The secret to the flavor is several applications of the sauce, then subsequently returning it to the oven to bake the sauce dry. Three seemed to be the magical number for flavor when I baked these up.
  • You really need to make sure that the chickpeas are really dried out before you take them out of the oven. If you don’t, that’s when the chickpeas end up being chewy and not crispy.
  • You don’t have to make these with the hot sauce, you can just make them plain with olive oil and salt!

How Long Do Cooked Chickpeas Last?

These roasted chickpeas will last for 3-4 days in a closed bag or container at room temperature.

Baked Chickpeas

You want to make sure that the chickpeas don’t stick to the baking sheets, and you can use parchment paper if you like BUT I find that the metal straight on the chickpeas helps crisp them up better than using parchment paper. The less oil you add, the better the baked chick peas will be.

You will also notice that I bake these as PLAIN as can be before I add the hot sauce. When you bake chickpeas as plain as possible, with as little oil as possible, they crisp up a lot better. So are you a hot sauce fan? Yay or nay? Let me know if you give these a whirl!

Love you more than hot sauce,

    These are soooo good! This is now my all time favorite snack. Can’t go wrong with Franks!

    • Ross Bellwood says

      I will make a small adjustment; dried chick peas and pink salt!

  2. Debbie Robinson Woloshyn says

    Must try this! My husband puts that sh$t on everything! lol

    • The Kitchen Magpie says

      That’s because it’s gooooood on everything!

  3. Mommom Holly says

    Do you think using parchment paper would make a difference ( cutting out the oil? )

    I am also a fan of FRANK’S! – my daughter turned me on to that brand for her buffalo chicken dip.

    Might I suggest using Bulls Bay smoked sea salt? – ck out Bulls Bay, you’ll love their product!!!

  4. Carla Armstrong says

    These are so good. I have nice tzatziki to cool things down.

  5. The Kitchen Magpie says

    And then of course, you have to cook the chickpeas before you roast them. Again..not so easy and it’s time consuming.

  6. The Kitchen Magpie says

    CRUNCH! The secret is to try and bake them with NO oil, no salt, nothing. Flavoring should go on last. Bake them until they are crunchy and then add the other stuff. Another trick is to use dried then rehydrated chick peas, but most people don’t have the patience to rehydrate overnight.

  7. A Girl Needs a Name says

    These look really, really, yummy!

    I like the extra bean recipes lately 🙂

    • thekitchenmagpie says

      A Girl Needs a Name Oh, there’s more on the way…Mike’s so happy. LMAO!
