Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. To make tortilla chips, lightly brush both sides of each tortilla with water. Lightly sprinkle taco seasoning mix over both sides of each tortilla, using the 1/2 tsp amount of the seasoning mix. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges; place on cookie sheet. Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from baking sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, to make hummus, drain and rinse chick peas. In blender or food processor, place chick peas, water, lemon juice, oil, garlic and remaining 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix.
