Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted red pepper hummus is a nice twist on the old classic chickpea hummus and is a popular Middle Eastern dish.
This recipe is sweet with a little bit of spice, smokey, garlicky and simply just wonderful.  It is super easy to make but can take a while if you roast your own red peppers.  Check out the Roasted Red Pepper post to make your own (which will be a lot tastier) or alternatively if you want to skip this part you can always buy roasted red peppers in a jar.
