One of my favorite snacks (and actually one of the first things I ever made when I first started cooking) is Hummus. For Christmas 5 years ago, my mom got me my food processor. I have been obsessed ever since with using my processor to make the perfect hummus. For anyone who buys pre-made hummus in the supermarket, you know a small little package can go for $5 (insanity). So I learned how to make my own - it's fast and east. So after much trial and error, I came up with the perfect recipe for that Classic Hummus taste.

You can also make flavored hummus by adding roasted red peppers, jalapenos, etc etc
