All it takes is one food processor, blender or immersion blender to make this recipe and about six ingredients. The star of the dish is the chickpea which we will turn into easy peasy hummus with tortilla. So if you have a can of chickpeas in the cupboard or some dried chickpeas you got the majority of the dish all ready. Add some bits and pieces and you will have easy peasy hummus with tortillas. Lets get started!
The easiest way to make this dish is with a food processor. A blender or an immersion blender will do just fine but might take longer to puree the chickpeas. The fastest way is off course taking chickpeas from a can. I still had a can of chickpeas in the cupboard so I used them. If you have dried chickpeas you need to put them in water over night and remove the skin. You also need to cook them to soften the chickpeas so more so they blend to a smooth paste.
What more do you need? Well one or two gloves of garlic, fresh lemon juice, Tahini paste, olive oil, water if the hummus is to thick and salt and pepper to taste. Keep 10 to 15 chickpeas aside for decorative purposes.
Start by adding all the ingredients in the food processor and mix the ingredients until they are nice and smooth. Add the olive oil in batches not all in one go to make sure oil gets incorporated through the whole hummus. If the hummus is a little thick add some water. I usually start with two tablespoons blend and see the result and add two more tablespoons until I am happy with the thickness of the hummus. Add some paprika powder, the chickpeas and dried parsley for decorative purposes if you like.
To complete the easy peasy hummus with tortillas we need… tortillas. You can use corn tortillas if you want to eat gluten free, you can take corn wheat tortillas or just flour tortillas. For this dish I used flour tortillas. From the tortillas I am making crackers. I dampen the tortillas with a little water so they can get nice and crispy in the pan. Then I carve the tortillas with a knife while I heat a pan (no oil or other backing product). In goes a tortilla to heat up. Turn the tortilla frequently. If there is smoke coming of the pan the heat is to high. Take out the tortilla and cut it into wedges. You are ready to serve the easy peasy hummus with tortillas.
