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.
Spicy hummus serving ideas
Homemade hummus can be served as a dip with chips, crackers or veggie sticks.
Or serve it at a tailgating party when your favorite sports team wears green.
Sandwiches and wraps: Hummus also makes a terrific sandwich spread.
To make pinwheel sandwiches, spread it on tortillas. Then roll and slice.
This Mama’s tips for making homemade hummus
So don’t throw it out! Here’s a recipe on how to do make them.
Can’t find ripe avocados? Everytime I go to the store, all I find are rock hard avocados. So frustrating.
However, I’ve had better luck in the organic section. You pay more, but you get results.
I haven’t tried frozen avocados yet. (Yes, that’s available now!)
But I may try frozen the next time I can’t find any ripe avocados and want to make some avocado based dips.
