BBQ Spice Mixture

  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of salt, garlic powder, chili powder and pepper powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder

Spicy baked wonton chips

  • 20 Twin Dragon Wonton Wrappers, cut in half crosswise to get 40 triangles

Easy skillet bbq chickpeas

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 large garlic clove, minced
  • few jalapeños slices (more if you are feeding spice loving adults)
  • 2 X 15.5 ounce cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, I used Kinders
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or according to your taste
  • 2 pinches ground black pepper

Additional ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cooked corn kernels
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, chopped
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 large jalapeño sliced (or as much as your guests can handle)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Bbq sour cream

  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons bbq sauce, I used Kinders


Bake spicy wonton chips

  • Stir all spice mixture together in a small bowl and set aside. 
  • Pre heat oven to 375 degrees and spray 2 sheet pans with non-stick cooking spray. 
    Place all cut wonton triangles in a single layer on both sheet pans. Spray a coating a non-stick cooking spray on top of the wonton skins and sprinkle the bbq spice mixture evenly (use as much or as little as you'd like). You might have some spice mixture leftover. 
  • Bake one sheet at a time for about 12 minutes or until the chips look crisp and brown. Place pan on a wire rack to cool completely. 
    Spicy Wonton chips can be made up to a day ahead and stored in a ziplock bag. 

Make easy skillet bbq chickpeas

  • Heat oil in a medium non-stick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic and jalapeño slices when hot. Saute for about 3 minutes until onions begins to get translucent. 
    Add chickpeas, barbecue sauce, salt and pepper. Stir until the mixture bubbles and thickens slightly (It will continue to thicken as it cools). Remove from heat and let cool.
