I am a huge fan of hummus. I love all the varieties and I especially love to make it from scratch. I think a lot of people get intimidated by making hummus, but I’m telling you it’s not that difficult. As long as you have a blender, Magic Bullet or food processor, you’ll be fine!

Adjust the cayenne pepper to taste. If you don’t like spicy things, use less. (Me? I like spice!) I think next time I might try adding a little more lime and try a diced garlic clove instead of the garlic powder.
