In this instructable I show you how you can make a red roasted bell pepper hummus dip. This hummus dip goes really well with some spicy tortilla crisps. It is so easy to make and you can make a batch in advance.

To make this hummus you need some fresh bell peppers and put them in the oven to roast them for about 30-40 minutes until soft. If you want to speed up the process you can use roasted bell peppers in a jar. This will work just as well. Then it is all about combining the following ingredients in a kitchen machine or in the blender: chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice. olive oil, cumin powder, roasted bell peppers, paprika, chili powder, pepper and salt to taste.

To make spicy tortilla crisps I use two tortillas and cut them into small strips. In a bowl I put some vegetable oil and coat the strips of tortilla with the oil. Add some parsley, garlic powder and some paprika powder. Bake in the oven at 425℉ for about 10 minutes until crispy. Turn the strips about halfway through the cooking time. Serve when warm and you have a great and healthy snack.

You can easily freeze the dip so make a batch and store separately so you can enjoy this any time you like.
