Fried chickpeas Nopalito

These seasoned, deep fried chickpeas are frickin’ addictive.  They’re salty and dry which makes them perfect to eat with some beer or sangria!  I wonder if they’d give me more if I asked? A great way to jump-start your meal.

Polvorones Nopalito

And when your check arrives, it’s accompanied with these delicious cookies which I think are “polvorones”. They’re crumbly, nutty and sweet. I would have guessed that they’re made with almonds but I’ve read that the Mexican variety is usually made with pecans. Regardless, they’re nommy!
