Halfway Homemade Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

It seems like there is always a container of hummus in the refrigerator – and with good reason! I love hummus as a snack with carrots, snow peas, or cucumbers and even as a spread on a sandwich. Although original hummus is delicious, sometimes I want a little added flavor without making a special trip to the store. Here’s a quick way to jazz up your original store-bought hummus:

  • 1 cup original hummus
  • 1-2 roasted red peppers (jarred with oil)
  • 1 tsp dried basil

Finely chop the roasted red peppers and pour into a bowl or food storage container. Add the hummus and mix well until the peppers and hummus are combined. Add dried basil and stir again. Enjoy!
