Road Trips - Fried Chickpeas

    2 teaspoons smoked paprika
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    2 15-oz. cans chickpeas, rinsed, drained, patted very dry
    Kosher salt
    2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest

Combine paprika and cayenne in a small bowl and set aside.

Heat oil in a 12" skillet over medium-high heat. Working in 2 batches, add chickpeas to skillet and sauté, stirring frequently, until golden and crispy, 15–20 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer chickpeas to paper towels to drain briefly. Place in a medium bowl. Sprinkle paprika mixture over; toss to coat. Season to taste with salt. Toss with lime zest and serve.
