Holly's Hummus

Rating: 4.5 stars 160
An easy-to-make, light and zesty Mediterranean-flavored hummus. A hit with my friends and family, this is great as an appetizer, side dish, or versatile dip for veggies, pita or chips.

Pumpkin Hummus

Rating: 4 stars 55
This stuff is soooooo good! You can either make it from scratch as I have it here, or you can simply add the pumpkin and spices to a pre-made 32 fl. oz container of hummus. I have played around with it in different recipes, but it makes such a good dip for either soft pita or chips. It is savory and warm tasting and I heartily recommend everyone try it! Be sure to use pureed pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling.

Easy Hummus

Rating: 4.5 stars 329
I make this hummus all the time. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it's healthier without the oil. Increase or decrease the ingredients as desired, especially the jalapenos! Serve with pita chips or fresh veggie slices. Add more of the reserved bean liquid for a smoother dip.

Classic Texas Caviar

Rating: 5 stars 220
Don't bother with soaking and cooking beans for Classic Texas Caviar - the canned variety works well. But skip the bottled dressing, and take a little extra time to measure your own vinegar, oil and spices.

This all purpose salsa is great on tortilla chips, tacos and other Mexican-style favorites. Roasted jalapeno chile peppers give the salsa an excellent flavor.

Salsa II

This is a very good salsa recipe. Simple ingredients are boiled and blended to created a flavorful, spicy mixture that's great with tortilla chips and on Mexican-style foods. The amounts of onions and jalapenos may be varied; canned crushed tomatoes may be substituted for fresh.
