Ingredients

4 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for soft taco & fajitas (6 inch)
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ chick peas (garbanzo beans), undrained
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, if desired
1/4 cup crumbled queso fresco cheese, if desired

Instructions


Step 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

Step 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. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges; place on cookie sheet. Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 10 minutes.

Step 3 Meanwhile, to make hummus, drain chick peas, reserving liquid. In blender or food processor, place chick peas, oil, lemon juice, garlic and remaining 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix. Cover; blend until smooth. Add reserved chick pea liquid, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency.

Step 4 Garnish hummus with cilantro and queso fresco. Serve with tortilla chips.
