One day I was making hummus when I realized I didn't have one of the key ingredients — tahini. So I took a sharp left turn into my pantry and added a few secret ingredients. This is now my go-to party dip for adults and kids. Serve it with baked pita chips or fresh veggies like cucumber, jicama, or celery, if you want to keep it gluten free. You can even spread it on a chicken sandwich. Yum!
