Chili Lime Chickpeas

"This is such a fun and lively side dish! I made this up one day with ingredients that I had on hand. I have made it as an Asian side dish, an Indian side dish, and even as a Mexican side dish. It really works any way! If you don't have sesame or chili oil, any oil will do, just cut it down to only 2 tablespoons. I just really LOOOOOVE sesame oil! Enjoy!"

    I wasn't sure how this would turn out, but it was actually really good! Of course, it didn't hurt that all my favorite ingredients were in it! Chickpeas can be kind of bland on their own and the lime and cilantro really helped to brighten up the dish. KPD - I'm a sesame oil fanatic too, so if you've got any more recipes, please post! Thanks!
