Didn't care for this at all, maybe I'm not a hummus person, but it was so bland! It is far easier to whip up the onion soup mix/sour cream dip and just use fat free sour cream to be healthier.

Loved it. Great change from traditional hummus. I added a little more cayenne (we like it hot). I will make this many, many more times. Thanks for a great recipe!
