What exactly is hummus?
Hummus is a spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas, mixed with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. It is very popular throughout the Middle East and among health conscious Americans. Chickpeas are one of the earliest cultivated vegetables and are also known as garbanzo beans, Indian peas, and several other names. They are an edible legume that is high in protein.

How Does Sabra Supremely Spicy Hummus Taste?
This hummus is smooth, creamy, and rich in taste. It does have a very defined spicy kick to it. In the middle of the container are some roasted red peppers that offer even more spice. You can eat around the peppers if you want a milder taste, but mixing them in with the hummus make it extremely spicy and delicious.
Thoughts On Sabra Supremely Spicy Hummus
If you've never had hummus before this is not the one to start with. You might be better off starting with a roasted red pepper or garlic hummus that doesn't have much spice but still has great taste.
And how do you eat it? Spicy hummus can be used on crackers, with vegetable like celery, or just on its own. One great tip for this supremely spicy hummus is to put some on a tortilla, add black beans, add cheese and salsa. Roll it and eat a delicious little treat!
