      I love Hummus and this looks great. The chillies should add that "umph" to the dish.

      Yum! I love hummus, especially with pita bread. This is a winning recipe with me because it has a kick to it I like! You know, as many times as I have had it, I have never considered using it as sandwich spread. Now, it will become a habit. Thanks for the information and recipe.
