Ranch seasoned air fryer chickpeas are a satisfying, healthy snack. They scratch that itch for flavor, crunch, and salt without the grease of a potato chip.

1 15ouncecan chickpeasdrained but NOT rinsed, and save the liquid from the can!
In a small bowl, toss together the chickpeas and 1 tablespoon of the liquid that you reserved from the can. Air fry at 400° F for 12 minutes.
Transfer the chickpeas back to your small bowl, and toss in the olive oil, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and lemon juice, so the beans get nice and coated.
Transfer the chickpeas back to your air fryer basket and cook at 350° F for 5 more minutes
Serve now, or cool completely and then store in an airtight container (see Notes below).
It's critical that you do not rinse your chickpeas. The bit of liquid from the can that clings to the beans adds an extra crunch that you don't want to miss!
Don't try to save a step and add the seasoning at the beginning of cooking. The garlic and onion powder will be fine, but the dill in the ranch seasoning will burn if you cook it for so long at such a high temperature.
If you need to store these, let them cool completely, then store in an airtight container on the counter. They will keep for 2-3 days.
