Ingredients

Pita Chips:
Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):

Directions

In the bowl of a food processor, place the chickpeas and red bell pepper. On a cutting board, mash the garlic cloves with 1/4 teaspoon of salt to a smooth paste with the side of a knife, then add this to the processor along with the crushed red pepper, tahini, water, 4 tablespoons of the lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, cumin, and pepper and process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Taste and adjust the seasoning by adding salt and additional lemon juice, if necessary, to taste. Transfer to a wide shallow bowl for serving and use the back of a serving spoon to form a well in the center of the hummus. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and sprinkle the top with the parsley, and paprika. Serve at room temperature, with pita chips for dipping.

Pita Chips:

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Combine the olive oil, garlic, and Essence in a small bowl and whisk to mix. Brush the mixture evenly over the rough (inside portion) of each pita bread half. Stack the pita breads and cut into quarters. Arrange the pita pieces evenly on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown and crispy, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.

Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
