Spread a tortilla with 2 to 3 tablespoons of hummus and place in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle with onions, tomatoes, and salsa.

Top with a second tortilla and cook until bottom tortilla is warm and soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and cook second side for another minute. Remove from pan and cut in half. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
