1 can of chick peas also known as garbanzo beans (keep half of the water)
1 tsp. of cumin
1 or 2 cloves of garlic depending on your taste

Blend in a food processor until extremely smooth.

olive oil for frying
4 to 6 flour tortillas
Cut the tortillas into 6 triangles and fry until lightly browned in olive oil.  You will need to continuously add olive oil as the tortillas absorb a lot of the oil while being fried. Drain on paper towel.  Use these "tortilla chips" to dip into the humus. Goes great with any Middle Eastern or Eastern dish.  If you can get fresh pita bread or flat bread you can use instead of the tortillas.  Best if humus is cooled in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and when the bread is still a little warm. Serves 4 to 5 people.
