Spicy Hummus

Gosh I did these photos like a month ago but could not find what folder I put the recipe card I. On my computer. I thought it was lost forever but I finally found it last night! I guess thats the one good thing about having a boyfriend who bails on plans is that I have more time for photos. :/

Hummus is one of those things I eat all the time. Yep pretty much everyday. It is just so good. Having it with veggies, apples, chips, crackers, bread yeah I'll pretty much eat it on anything. But it is one of those things I have never found a good recipe for. Mine would always come out too chunky no matter how much I would blend it. Or has a weird taste that just does not compare to the ones I get at trader joes that are so good. Oh and I love you trader joes but why do you make that amazing tomato basil hummus in such small containers? I can eat it all in one sitting! 

So I figured it was time to make my own recipe that I would actually want to eat. And this spicy version does the trick! It has such a nice kick and comes out pretty thick which helps to prevent me from eating the whole bowl.
