I always felt intimidated at the thought of making my own hummus. What are chickpeas and garbanzo beans?! Tahini?? Friends, it is SO much easier to make hummus than I thought. And since it's cold outside, we decided to kick up the heat a notch and make a hummus recipe with a kick. This stuff is amazing. I made it this morning to photograph and we've been snacking on it all day. As a matter of fact, we were so inspired, we've decided to carry garbanzo beans and tahini in the store. So now, you can stop in and pick up all your hummus supplies at the mercantile. Yum to the yum!
