Smoky Hummus with Baked Tortilla Chips

Smoky Hummus and Tortilla Chips Recipe

After that luxurious hamburger dinner last night, I needed to feel healthy today. I had some leftover corn tortillas and pantry ingredients to make a smoky hummus. The kids love it too!

The bright orange/red Smoked Sweet Paprika is the spice that gives that smoky punch to the hummus.

    that’s a nice recipe, but REAL hummus is made out of dried garbanzos (or actually chickpeas. same family, different son).

    fresh hummus not made from dried garbonzos! maybe manufactured hummus is, but it wouldnt matter because it would be reconstituted with water when made. thats like saying real oj is made from concentrate! and ive always been told garbanzos and chickpeas are the same…

    Dear Jaden,
    I love hummus. I have been buying the pre-made hummus from Trader Joes.

    It will be nice to make my own hummus. Where can I buy Tahini paste?

    .

    I like hummus and make it from time to time, it’s nice with warmed pita or other flatbreads.

    But four cloves of garlic?

    I agree with Bobby the K. I use one clove of garlic per can of garbanzos and just that amount gives it quite a bite!

    I bought tahini at my local grocery store. You can make it with 1 cup of sesame seeds processed with olive oil, too. I tried that but had no idea what consistency it should be. The tahini is thick but you can pour it out of the jar.

    Must less expensive and good making your own. And you can add whatever seasonings you wish.
