Haunted Hummus and Pita Chips

Here’s a final spooky recipe to thrill your kids this Halloween! This was the last recipe in Travis’s Spooky Kitchen kit from Raddish Kids. He was less interested in the cooking for this one, but did enjoy the eating, especially when I called it Vampire Dip instead!


For the pita chips:

  • 3 large pitas
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the black hummus:

  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. To prepare the chips, cut each pita into 8 wedges. Transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt, mixing well with your hands.
  2. Arrange the pita wedges in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet (use two sheets, if needed). Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the hummus: drain the black beans in a colander and transfer to a blender.
  4. Smash and peel the garlic clove; add to the blender.
  5. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze over a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons juice to the blender.
  6. Add the tahini, 3 tablespoons olive oil, water, cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; blend until creamy.
  7. Scoop the hummus into a serving dish and arrange the pita chips around it.

Travis loved the spooky madlibs we put together as he snacked, a great mini lesson on parts of speech with a silly Halloween dinner party as the result.
