Watch Elysabeth as she dishes up an appetizer-lovers feast! She starts off with some simple hummus using fresh garlic and canned chickpeas. She recommends salting as you go so you avoid overdoing it on the salt. Elysabeth also reminds us to keep the water you strain from the chickpea can because it is a cooking treasure you can use later called aquafaba! While the hummus is sauteeing, Elysabeth gets to work on her easy guacamole, which she likes to eat chunky but you can make it to your desired texture. Guacamole always tastes better with chips and salsa so Elysabeth makes those too! She muddles her salsa because it feels good to release some energy as you cook! Then she makes tortilla chips by cutting corn tortillas made with the simplest ingredients and placing them on a baking sheet in her toaster oven. She sprinkles on a little Tajín for a pop of flavor! Once the chickpeas and garlic are finished sauteeing Elysabeth turns them into a flavorful hummus in her food processor. How easy was that?
