IC, how about something like Fritos Scoops?  Essentially, they are corn tortilla chips, but they are a bit thicker and would travel better, I'd think. Perfect for the hummus too.  Try putting them into a Ziploc or a food sealer bag (no vaccum...) with most of the air squeezed out and then find an appropriate size cardboard box to put them in to avoid the crush.  Add some other light items or newspaper to take up any extra volume so they don't get shook up and break that way.  I do that all the time with things like bread (King's Hawaiian loaf...makes awesome French toast...), crackers, and anything delicate.  The box then makes great fire starting material and disappears when you're done with it.

Plus...according to Les Stroud, they make great fire starters themselves!
