Place ingredients for hummus into a food processor and blend until smooth. Adjust seasonings and stir. Remove from processor and place into a bowl. Refrigerate until chilled. Any extra can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator and used as a dip.

Cut ham pieces in half so you have 20 pieces.
