After perusing the mecca of the Hispanic pantry at Conchita Brands recently, short order got the urge to cook up some traditional Latin food. So we asked Sixto Ferro Jr. for his "quick and dirty" recipe for a family favorite, "Garbanzo's Fritos." This literally translates to fried chickpeas although they are not actually fried and the dish is more of a savory stew than "frito." The tangy and slightly spicy flavors are great served over some white rice.
