5 stars from 1 rating of 5 Minute Hummus

Hummus has got to be one of my absolute favorite snacks. I love the simpleness of this recipe. Prepared with chickpeas or garbanzo beans this yummy hummus dip makes for a great healthy snack or appetizer. Feel free to add extra flavors such as peppers, garlic or olive oil. You'll have absolutely no problem finishing it.

      @Kawi - Most of the time it is made with chick peas but they are pretty much the same thing so whichever is easier to find is what I use! Hope you enjoy it.
