My kids like hummus in their lunches with carrots and chips, so I always double this whenever I make it. It’s wonderful in place of mayonnaise in sandwiches or wraps and you can serve it with fresh, raw vegetables. But if you want something savory, these lightly salt chips provide just the right crunch. And if you don’t want to take the time to fry up these chips, get a bag of organic corn chips and rip ’em open!
