Chickpeas with paprika

While waiting for our JetBlue flight to take off from JFK last July, we had a delicious snack, which I was able to reproduce at home. I'm now seriously addicted to these chickpeas.

Two cans of chickpeas, drained & rinsed.
Olive oil
smoked paprika
sweet paprika
dried parsley flakes

In a big mixing bowl, add about 1 or 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to the chickpeas. Toss with lots of the paprika using more of the smoked than the sweet. Salt to taste. Parsley flakes are just for some green color, which looks nice with the redness of the paprika. Experiment with the amounts to suite your taste. Be sure to use enough salt, which really sweetens the whole thing. Really quite a nice side dish, or tossed in a salad or just as a snack by themselves. Let me know what you think of this recipe and where you think it originated. I'm curious.
