Hummus is such a great snack. Or if I’m being honest, hummus and crackers has been my dinner on many of those ‘too tired to cook’ nights.
It’s also a great appetizer to set out at parties. Everyone loves hummus and people seem to gravitate toward the hummus and chips.
I love Mexican food and flavors and made a Mexican-inspired version by adding pico de gallo, cilantro, plenty of olive oil, and it’s perfect with corn tortilla chips. To make the hummus I used the new BUSH’S® Classic Hummus Made Easy which is available in the bean aisle. It’s the perfect blend of simple ingredients like tahini, olive oil, and spices. Just add a can of drained and rinsed BUSH’S® Garbanzo Beans and a pouch of Hummus Made Easy to a high-speed blender or food processor for delicious hummus. Pour, pouch, pulse and you’ve got perfect hummus in seconds.
I used BUSH’S® Classic Hummus Made Easy here. There’s also Roasted Red Pepper and Southwest Black Bean versions.
It’s so easy to get creative with your own twists on classic flavors. Try stirring in pesto and sprinkling with pine nuts for a zippy twist. Add dried fruit like cranberries, apricots, or figs with walnuts or almonds. Make a fall-themed version by adding pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Add sundried tomatoes and crumbled feta for Mediterranean hummus.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to hummus.
