Hummus and Pita Chips

My favorite snack, and always a crowd pleaser.  

2 cans garbanzo beans (drained, but reserve some liquid to add in case it is too thick)
1/3 cup of tahini
1/4 cup of lemon juice
4 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon of salt
olive oil

Combine beans, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and salt in a food processor.  Blend until smooth and add liquid from garbanzo beans if needed.  Drizzle the mixture with olive oil and sprinkle paprika on top.

Pita Chips:
Pita bread sliced into triangles
1/3 cup of olive oil
garlic powder
dried basil, dried oregano (or Italian seasoning)

Lay slices of pita bread on foil lined baking sheet (greased with cooking spray).  Mix olive oil and seasonings, brush mixture over the pita bread and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes (toss the chips at about 8 minutes into cooking time).
