With a little planning, it’s easy to whip up a batch of hummus for unexpected guests, a potluck or an after-school snack. I always bake up extra unpeeled sweet potatoes so I can quickly mash the pulp for this unexpected dip. —Mary Marlowe Leverette, Columbia, South Carolina

"I've made this hummus three times in the past month and a half! We LOVE it - with veggies, with pita chips, on shredded pork-and-cheese quesadillas. It's the perfect combination of a little bit of sweet and a little bit of heat."

"I have to admit, I was a little skeptical at first of the ingredients, but I was pleasantly surprised to find how tasty this dip was! Even my fiance who claims to not like sweet potatoes, thought this dip was excellent. It is great with chips, veggies, pretzels, bread, etc."
