Hummus scoops

I bought this Tostitos scoops 2 days ago and was thinking of what should I do with it apart from eating with just regular salsa. So after a bit of thought process, I came up with this idea.
Tostitos scoops filled with Hummus. And boy that tastes yummylicious!
Here is how I made it

For Hummus:
1 can of chickpeas
3 garlic cloves
(if you do not like too much garlic
you can use 2 or may be just one)
1/2 small red onion
handful of parsley leaves
handful of cilantro leaves
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp lemon juice (preferably fresh)
1 tps ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1 jalapeno chopped
1 tbsp tahini

Put all the ingredients in a food processor except olive oil. Turn the food processor on and while it's running drizzle olive oil from the feeder or you can just put everything in the food processor and run it. But drizzling olive oil while it's running will give you a creamier hummus.

Take the hummus out in a bowl and taste, adjust the seasonings and serve with pita chips or serve the way I serve it. One picture is with olives on top and the bottom picture also shows the scoop with salsa. I couldn't believe how good hummus tasted alongwith salsa.
