Have you ever wondered how to make hummus and whether it’s easy enough to do yourself? Making hummus at home is so easy and much less expensive than buying pre-made hummus at the store.
Plus you can control the ingredients! Most store-bought hummus uses either canola or soy oil and we try to avoid both of those. When you make hummus at home, you can use ingredients you like such as extra virgin olive oil.
Growing up in San Diego, one of my favorite cuisines is Mexican, and I often sneak those flavors into many dishes. This recipe will show you how to make hummus with Mexican flavors. It’s a nice change from the traditional hummus flavors.
