  • 1
    To make dip: In a food processor, add the beans, chickpeas, jalapeños, garlic, cilantro, zest and juice of 1 lemon, smoked paprika, chili powder, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Pulse to start, the turn to high.
  • 2
    Stream in the olive oil and process until smooth. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides, process for another 10 seconds. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  • 3
    To make tortilla chips: In a shallow, heavy pan, preheat 3 cups of canola oil to just above medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • 4
    While the oil is heating, take 5 tortillas at one time and slice them in half. Stack the halves and slice into thirds. You should get 6 chips out of 1 tortilla.
  • 5
    Add about 15 tortilla pieces to hot oil at once. Using a slotted spoon or a kitchen tool known as a spider, move the chips around while they fry. Turn as needed to crisp both sides. Drain chips onto a baking sheet lined with paper towels and season lightly with salt as they come out of the hot oil. Repeat until all chips are done.
  • 6
    Garnish the hummus with green onions before serving. Serve right away or if serving later, cool chips completely and store in plastic storage bag until ready to serve.

Expert Tips

  • Cooking beans, chickpeas and hominy from scratch is not so difficult. Soak them overnight, drain, add fresh water and cook at a low boil for a couple of hours. Add salt towards the end of cooking times to ensure soft beans, chickpeas or hominy.
