Spicy Hummus

Need an appetizer for the holiday potluck? This hummus recipe is quick, easy and delicious. In fact, you will never buy store made hummus again after making this. The recipe is easy to adjust (the premise is chickpeas, tahini, salt, and lemon juice) to suit your preferences and/or mood. Want more garlic? Or perhaps you prefer roasted red peppers? What about adding jalapenos? The sky is the limit! Go crazy and make your own creation.
