Roasted pepper hummus in a bowl

Hummus is a great snack or meal to eat at any time of the year thanks to its bountiful fiber and fat content. However, with the summer sun bringing peppers and chilis into the forefront, now is a great time to spice up your regular hummus with a bunch of red flavor! This roasted pepper hummus is everything a summer hummus should be–creamy, filling, and a small tinge of that sweet spice derived from the roasted peppers. Eat it with tortilla chips for a satisfying crunch! Details of our upcoming recipe contest can be found below, as well.
