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 4 out of 5 by Reggierae from Good consistency... a little bland For this recipe, I roasted my own pepper and followed the recipe as directed. I'm not a huge cumin fan, so I think I would have preferred the recipe if I had omitted this spice. I also found it needed extra salt. I believe the next time I will try using roasted, jarred red peppers.. perhaps they would add more flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vita20 from Love it! Just perfect. I made it in the stainless steel container. Maybe I will add a little less liquid next time - maybe 3/4 cup as I added a whole lime and whole lemon (peeled and removed seeds). I also roasted 3 garlic cloves with the red pepper. Added a little more salt to taste. Also hot sauce to taste.
