Rated 4 out of 5 by JillSofija from Yum with some spice needed! This is a great base recipe! For those who like a mild hummus, it's perfect. I love a little heat and spice in my hummus - so I added some jalapeno slices and juice from that jar (fresh would be even better, but I didn't have it!). After making, I topped with a bit of olive oil and a dollop of fresh chili sauce - made it look beautiful (just like store bought!) and the extra heat was very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tomcatx from Nothing added (but a little mesquite smoke) Made this recipe exactly as published with the exception of using fresh garbanzo beans instead of canned and I grilled the red peppers and garlic over mesquite coals. AWESOME!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SharLise from The best roasted red pepper hummus ever I was surprised and how epic this was! I left out the oil, cumin and black pepper and added about 8 jalapeno rings and a generous pinch of cayenne pepper. The creamiest, most delicious hummus ever. But I would like to state I do not like having to post my gender and age on your site. There is no reason why you must have this information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jovanna from Uses pantry ingredients, good fast tasty healthy! This took a few minutes to put together. I added extra hot sauce to taste, and when I weighed the chickpeas it came to 1 1/2 cans drained. I would just add both cans next time. I would hold back some of the water however, this way you can regulate the consistency. I had roasted garlic, so I added more garlic than was called for since it is sweeter. I have roasted sesame seeds but I also have tahini paste, which is ground sesame seeds; so in place of the sesame seeds, I added 1/4 cup of tahini paste instead. Hummus is a blank slate. You can add a few personal touches here and there as I did. When you serve it, drizzle some EVOO and a sprinkle of smoked paprika on top. BTW, this makes a lot, so invite the neighbors in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrittanyG from Easier than expected.. Never realized how easy it is to make homemade hummus until trying this recipe. I'll never go back to processed hummus.
