"Just okay. It's not hummus unless you add tahini (ground sesame seeds). Try it once and you'll never make it without again!"

"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! :)"

"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!"
