Jerk Chickpeas

**This is one of my FAVORITE things to make, for the banking honestly I just keep it in there covered for about 40 min to get the chickpeas softest – I don’t mess around with mixing (I might give it a shake that’s about it).

Also – when I don’t have all the seasonings for the marinade, I just use my jerk seasoning from the store premixed, with all the other ingredients (garlic, ginger, lime, tomato past, maple syrupe, ect)**
