Hummus
Elevate your snack game from yum to out-of-this-world with the help of a few killer add-ins. All you need to start is a tub of hummus and the right chips to stand up to the challenge. MORE+ LESS-

If you’re like us, hummus is a snacking staple at your get-togethers. We try to make our own hummus from scratch as often as possible – but let’s be real, we don’t always have the time. Our next best option? Start with a tub of plain hummus and turn it into a fresh, flavorful and unique dip with awesome add-ins. And don’t forget that hummus is only as good as its vessel, so make sure you pick up a bag of some quality chips, too. Here are four ways to upgrade your hummus from plain ol’ bean dip to, “wow, hand me another chip!”

All that’s missing is a T-bone steak! Loaded with caramelized onions, thick-cut bacon and blue cheese, this hummus is hard to stop snacking on. Dip a crusty slice of toasted French bread or sweet potato tortilla chip in there and enjoy with a glass of red – you won’t be sorry.

Serve this as an appetizer before pasta night with some black bean chips – warning: you may not be hungry for dinner.
