Looks like another winner. One of my favorites also and I have all the ingredients in my cupboard right now.

Thank you for this. Hummus is one of my new favorite snacks. I haven't actually tried making my own and the only store bought flavors I've found is Roasted Red Pepper and Spinach and Artichoke. Both are good but would love to be able to taste others.
