Expert Tips

Spice up the wonton chips by sprinkling with a combination of salt and chili powder.

This is a great make-ahead appetizer. Both the hummus and chips can be made a day in advance. To make the chips a day ahead, bake and cool; store in a covered container at room temperature.

To make wasabi paste from wasabi powder, mix equal parts powder and water until smooth.
