Elevate store bought hummus to another level of delicious with this easy 3-Ingredient Mexican-Style Hummus. Your seconds from an impressive-looking dip piled with festive toppings.
I received free samples of Sabra Hummus mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.
I love homemade hummus as much as the next person (this is one the best things I’ve ever made), but sometimes I just can’t be bothered. Okay, okay… most of the time I can’t be bothered.
With both Cinco de Mayo and National Hummus Day (May 13th) taking place this month, I decided to jazz up my favorite store-bought hummus in a festive way. Sabra sent over a few containers for the Recipe Redux Recipe Contest, including my go-to: Supremely Spicy. Perfect for a fiesta!
For this Mexican-inspired version, the spicy hummus with its chili pepper chunks was ideal. That’s just the beginning though. Stir in the chili pepper pieces, then top it with pico de gallo* and avocado. It’s the perfect texture contrast!
*Confession: I also buy pico de gallo pre-made. It’s just as good… so why not?
Most often, we eat hummus as a pre-dinner snack, but it also makes a quick crowd-pleasing app. You can prepare it the same way for either occasion. Just open your hummus, top it, and place it on a tray with chips, veggies, and/or cheese!
One of the reasons I snack on hummus is the protein content. Choosing snacks with protein is ideal because it satiates you. It’s not like when you reach for a bag of chips and you’re still munchy 15 minutes later. Hummus is also a plant-based protein, so all y’all (<— most Southern phrase ever) can enjoy it.
