I’ve been on a bit of a hummus kick lately. A local store makes a wonderful hummus dip with fire roasted peppers that is completely addicting. They have tons of different flavors: sun-dried tomato, paprika, garlic, olive, and even Sriracha. Seeing all of those flavors inspired today’s recipe.

It’s seriously the best of both worlds. It’s thick, rich, and pretty healthy. We don’t want to spoil our New Year’s Resolutions just yet. This is also a great dip to serve with chips or on toast at your next Super Bowl party.

So what exactly is hummus?

I feel like I get this question a lot. It’s just mashed chickpeas often blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and maybe a bit of garlic. Plain hummus is good, but adding a few different ingredients really brings it to the next level.

And it’s super-easy to make at home.

In this recipe, I use tahini. Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds. It adds a beautiful nutty flavor to the hummus. I didn’t have any at home, so I had to make a special trip to the grocery store. When I got there, I spent half the time wandering aimlessly through the aisles.  Apparently, it’s not the easiest ingredient to find.

I finally found it tucked away on the top shelf of some unknown section.

If you can’t find tahini, feel free to omit it. This recipe will still be pretty delicious without it.

For a creamy hummus, blend the chickpeas until smooth. I prefer a bit more texture, so I blend it for a shorter amount of time. I like finding the little chunks of chickpeas as I eat.
