  1. For the Hummus: Puree the chickpeas in your blender or food processor. Add tahini, yogurt, hot sauce, lemon juice and zest, garlic, salt and pepper. Keep pureeing and add tomatoes. Check your consistency here and if you prefer add a bit more yogurt or a little splash of water to thin the texture. Now taste and adjust your seasoning and you’re ready for the dippers!
  2. For the Pita Crackers: Preheat your oven to 350 °F (180°C).
  3. Whisk the oil and honey together and brush both sides of each of the pita chips. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut in 6 or 8 wedges, transfer to a cookie tray and bake until they begin to turn golden brown, about 10 minutes or so. Begin peaking in the oven every minute or so until the chips and continue baking until all the chips are evenly golden brown, not just the ones on the edge. Remove any that finish ahead of the pack and keep tanning the rest. Now you’re ready to dip and share!
