Step 1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 2
Drain Chickpeas (1 can) and in a colander gently dry them with a paper towel.

In a mixing bowl, combine the Chili Powder (1/2 Tbsp) , Paprika (1/2 tsp) , Ground Cumin (1/2 tsp) , Garlic Powder (1/8 tsp) , Salt (1/4 tsp) , and Ground Black Pepper (1/8 tsp) . Toss the chickpeas in the seasoning until evenly coated.
Step 4
On a parchment-lined baking tray spread the chickpeas out in an even layer. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until brown and crunchy.

While the chickpeas are cooking, prepare the tortillas. Lightly grease a baking tray, then spray the tortillas with Nonstick Cooking Spray (to taste) or brush both sides of the 6-Inch Corn Tortillas (6) with oil.
Step 6
Bake in the same oven for 10 minutes, flipping them halfway through. Once crisp, remove from oven to cool down.
Step 7
While the chickpeas finish baking, gently combine Cottage Cheese (1/2 cup) , Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1 tsp) , and Dried Oregano (1 tsp) in a mixing bowl.
