Pronounced Choo-moose, and not hum-miss! This is the easiest, yummiest hummous you will try outside the Middle East.

Great hummus! I added about 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt to thin the texture a bit, but otherwise followed the recipe faithfully. Great flavor--we all loved it1

This hummus was delicious, but the texture was way too thick for my tastes. I don't have a food processor and it nearly killed the motor in my blender. This might be because I boiled the chickpeas myself instead of getting them canned. I added about two cups of "broth" from the chickpeas to the mixture and it came out spectacularly. I think I might add less salt next time, though. Thanks for the recipe!

Great, hummous!!! I subbed fresh lime juice for lemon as that is what I had on hand and added a couple T. of plain yoghurt and it turned out creamy and delicious. Oh, and I also used peanut butter instead of tahini (an Alton Brown tip) because tahini is so expensive and I only use it to make hummous. Thanks for the simple and great recipe for a tasty and healty dip.
