Making homemade hummus recipes is easy!
Making this spicy hummus is so easy to do that you’ll wonder why you bother buying premade hummus at the store.
All you need is often already in your pantry or refrigerator – extra virgin olive oil, a can of garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas), tahini paste, garlic, salt, lemon juice, and some hot sauce. Usually all you need to do is buy a couple of ripe avocados.
The only other thing you need is a food processor or a high powered blender. If you make a lot of dips and smoothie recipes, it’s worth buying a good blender. I have a Blendtec and love it! When my kids broke it, the company replaced the jar for free.
Spicy hummus serving ideas
Homemade hummus can be served as a dip with chips, crackers or veggie sticks.
Hummus also makes a terrific sandwich spread. To make pinwheel sandwiches, spread it on tortillas. Then roll and slice.
