Chickpea Puppy Chow

Raven Higheagle


I've been having fun in the kitchen lately. Have ya noticed? So I've been trying some recipes...I had some chickpeas in the pantry and decided to try something weird and new.
I roasted them up without any spices and then made puppy chow with them. Of course, I used Bubba as my normal test subject and he loved did his friends!
