    Sue Lau's Note:

    From the New American Heart Association Cookbook. You can make this with either water or olive oil. I keep roasted peppers in the freezer which I buy en masse and roast them all, but you can use jarred. You don't have to remove the skins from the chickpeas either, but it does make for a superior hummus consistency. Try it and see. Especially see the pile of skins you WON'T be eating.

      This was pretty good. I really liked the addition of the peppers and even added one hot chili to spice it up a bit, just because I like hot things. However, I did feel that it wasn't quite as creamy as some of the full-fat hummous recipes that use tahini and olive oil.

      This is the best hummus I've ever had. The red-pepper flavor is wonderful, and you can taste the lime too. Mine turned out a little soupy - but it was so good I wanted to eat it with a spoon! Next time, I'll add water gradually and use less. Thanks for sharing!

      I made this almost as directed, using one whole red pepper from a jar and the juice of one lime and a squeeze of lemon juice from a bottle. It wasn't bad, but was a bit watery and didn't have a lot of flavour.
