When Mom brought this hummus recipe over this week I was a little skeptical. I’ll be honest, hummus usually isn’t my favorite thing to snack on. But I was blown away after trying it. I wanted more and more and even had her make it again to take to a trivia night we had last weekend (WE WON BY THE WAY!)

What is hummus made out of?

Hummus dip is made from chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and usually a bit of tahini or lemon juice with salt to taste. After that, you can add just about anything you want to your hummus! Popular hummus additions are garlic, roasted peppers, onions, and other simple ingredients.

Is Hummus good for you?

Hummus is a super healthy food! Since it really is just straight chickpeas, hummus dip is full of protein, fiber, and vitamin B. So it’s chock-full of nutrients! In addition, it’s a low-calorie, guilt-free snack.

This Rainbow Pepper Hummus Dip also has the added benefit of fresh peppers on top! There’s nothing healthier than fresh, brightly colored produce.

What do you eat with hummus dip?

The possibilities for this rainbow pepper hummus dip are endless! Hummus goes great with just about anything: crackers, chips, pretzels, vegetables, breads…

For game day, just set out a variety of crackers, pita chips, and chopped vegetables for easy dipping. Get some sturdy options so everyone can really dig in. I like serving with these wonton chips, hearty crackers, or baked tortilla chips.

If you need some more appetizers to serve at your next party, try this Chex Mix recipe, these Homemade Tortilla Chips with Blender Salsa, and this easy White Queso Dip! And don’t forget to quench their thirst with a Skinny Margarita.
