MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 3, 2013

I just made this in a pinch for a Super Bowl dip today. I didn't have the salad dressing, but used about 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes packed in oil (I used the oil too), added about a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, and added water until it was a good consistency. It's really good! Great recipe (I'll try the salad dressing next time)...and typical TOH...saves my behind every time I need to make something easy and quick from whatever I have on hand! :)

MY REVIEW

Very easy, simple, and flavorful. Next time I think I will add a little oil (maybe cumin and/or cayenne) to the processing as the beans were extremely thick in my processor. I added more dressing and overpowered the hummus. I immediately opened another can of beans to balance to taste. Whew! Almost messed that one up... :) Great recipe.

My family loved this spicy hummus! Maybe could have used a little more garlic but it's definitely a keeper!

So easy! I had never made hummus before I tried this recipe. Will be making it for Thanksgiving.

I didn't rate this recipe because I hadn't tried hummus before. Either I don't like it or I just didn't like this recipe.
