Spiced Tortilla Crisps with Hummus

Spiced Tortilla Crisps with Hummus

Hands-on Time:  10 minutes
Total Time:  15 minutes
Serves 4

  • 4 8″ flour tortillas, cut into 2″ strips
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • salt
  • pepper
  • hummus
  • paprika 

On 2 baking sheets, toss tortilla strips with olive oil and thyme, oregano, and sesame seeds; season with salt and pepper.  Bake at 425°F , switching the sheets halfway through, until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes.  Serve with hummus drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with paprika.

On theme with my hunt for healthier snacks and sides, I found this in Real Simple’s 10 Ideas for:  Tortillas.   I did overcook the strips and forgot the salt and pepper.  Overall though, they were pretty good.  I made them again and did a better job the second time around.

They make a great snack on their own or an excellent side with a sandwich.  An awesome substitute for chips!  And with the hummus and spices, it’s really a nice blend of flavors!
