Quick and Easy Spicy Hummus Recipe

This Spicy Hummus Is Even Better Than Trader Joe's

Have you hit a hummus rut? Your once favorite dip has suddenly lost its snackability? Don't you worry; it's just a sign that you need to spice things up a bit. Most will associate hummus with Mediterranean cuisine, but this particular recipe takes on some Mexican flair with the addition of cumin, coriander, and red pepper flakes.

To achieve a supersmooth hummus texture, try skinning each chickpea before tossing in the food processor. Sure, it seems time consuming, but it only requires 15 minutes tops and makes a noticeable difference.

Notes

To achieve a smooth hummus, pinch each chickpea to remove the papery skin. Discard the skins.

Would this taste the same without the tahini? I tried one hummus with tahini and I nearly retched my stomach empty. Maybe I got a bad batch.
