Enjoy this fun dip with crackers or veggies or on your favorite sandwich or burger. To make it smoother, add a bit more olive oil. If you prefer a more rustic texture, decrease the oil a little. —Kimberly Grusendorf, Medina, Ohio

"I must have done something wrong. The garlic was way too strong. I won't make it again."

"I think I ate half of this hummus before it was out of the food processor! I usually purchase hummus dip at the store. Not after trying this recipe! It was quick, easy and I had almost everything on hand. I did take the suggestion of decreasing lime and replacing with oil. It was perfect. The garlic and spice ratio was just right for me. Highly recomend this great recipe."

"Added a bit less garlic/lime juice and a bit more olive oil as per previous reviewers. So delicious! Fun to make your own cuz bought can be quite expensive."
