Sun-Dried Tomato-Flavored Hummus

Rated as 4.29 out of 5 Stars

"'I didn't like the hummus I bought in a box mix or in refrigerated tubs, so I made my own version using a pesto sauce mix,' writes Kathleen Tribble of Buelton, California. 'My husband and I enjoy it in sandwiches, but it's great on crackers, too. We like it so much that we eat any leftovers with a spoon!'"

As written it was bland. I added Cayenne & Tabasco. Served for breakfast on a multigrain bread. Very good. Took the rest to a brunch with crackers. Thanks!
