Salsa Hummus with Homemade Chips

Here is a healthy dip for all those tailgating parties coming up.  Or a dip for you to just munch on at home.  The husband claimed it resembled the homemade baby food I made little miss, but let's be honest, it didn't stop him from scarfing down the whole bowl.

I had personally never made hummus before, had it plenty of times, but always bought it.  But I will say now, 3 ingredients later, I should really be making this at home more often.

For a kick, I added in homemade tortilla chips.  I had a bag of corn tortillas that needed to be used up (I feel like I am always saying that?), so chips they became.  The little man was eating this by the spoonful, so I would give it an A+ from all family members.

Salsa Hummus
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 c. salsa
1 clove garlic, minced
1 t. salt

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Homemade Chips
*Cut corn tortillas into triangles, place on a wire rack onto of a baking sheet.  Spray with olive oil cooking spray, sprinkle with salt.  Bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until crispy.  These are best eaten fresh.

Which of course, was no problem at our house.

I'd like to give a shout out to some really fun bloggers.  Ones I read daily and enjoy their humor, food and fun.  I hope you can enjoy them too!

The Slow Roasted Italian - her pictures are beautiful and I'd love to be a fly on her kitchen wall.

Itzy's Kitchen - she is a recent new mom, how she finds time to do it all is beyond me.

Bakeaholic Mama +3 - another new mom, who bakes some very indulgent dishes, I love them.

Yes, I Want Cake - a school teacher, turned SAHM, cooking up healthy meals for her family.

Ashley's Cooking Adventures - I just found this blog last night, and if I'm mentioning it now, you know its good.

Life and Running in Iowa - need I say more?  She lives in the same state as me.

Now I could go on and on listing some of my favorite food blogs, but we'd be here all day.  The above are just some recent ones I've come to enjoy.

Check them out, I'm sure you'll like them too!

Would you like to comment?

  1. That hummus looks delish. I never thought of mixing in salsa. Texans would love this version of it. I will have to make it soon. Thanks for sharing those blogs. I haven't seen some of them before!

  2. Looks so good... and healthy as well! I'll have to try this out.

    PS... Thanks for the shout out!

  3. I love chips and salsa, and I love hummus. This sounds amazing!

  4. Your hummus sounds delicious!

    Thanks for the shout out! We don't have any flies in our kitchen, but if you are ever in AZ you can just come for dinner.

    So, where in IA are you? My husband is from there. Shocking huh, with the meat and potatoes mentality.

  5. This sounds amazing, I'm a huge salsa and hummus fan! Thanks :)

  6. Hey! Small world! We live in Wilton, a small town just east of Iowa City. Where is your hubby from? I've lived here my whole life, so I'm sure I'll know of the town!
