Spicy Hummus: Quick Chickpea Spread (Rachel Ray)

Total Time

This got many rave reviews on the other site. However, most said it was too thick. So some added about half the liquid from the canned chick peas, a little more olive oil and more lemon juice. I think some roasted red pepper would be good. Good basic recipe that you can adjust to taste, for our tastes I will most likely add more of the seasonings, and add a dash of cayenne too.

I love hummus and I am also quite fond of Rachael Ray, so I was eager to try this. It was pretty tasty although the tahini was more pronounced than I am used to. Also, I kept having to add EVOO to keep the hummus from getting too thick. This was so easy to do, and I will be making this again. Made for ZWT6 by a fellow Renegade.
