I serve this at least once a week with a chicken or steak meal or just as a quick snack. Learned from my late grandfather who was of Lebanese descent. Serve with fresh Arabic bread.

Cook's Note:

For thinner hummus, add more a little more water or even the liquid from the chickpeas. I find 1/4 cup water with totally drained garbanzos is perfect; after refrigeration it will thicken up. This is the basic hummus recipe and is simple yet delicious. Enjoy!
