Fresh Hummus

I love Pita chip, no seriously, I love them! I don’t buy them for so many reasons one being they are way over priced and two I will eat them all in one sitting that’s how much I love them. A few days ago I had left over pitas that were getting too hard to do anything much with and I didn’t want them to go bad because like the chips they are on the high side. I decided to make my own pita chips and boy did they turn out excellent. I also made my own hummus to go with them.

This recipe is delicious and fast! Boy is it fast! Why buy something that you can make for just pennies a serving! Excellent Recipe, and served on Pita chips is excellent!

  • 1/2 cup tahini (sesame seed paste Hulled)
