My Hummus Recipe by Samuel Mahoney

 I have always been proud of my hummus. Even when i was a teenager. Then I deployed and the Chaldean guy i worked with always added this earthy pepper to it. I forget the name, but it is somewhat similar to paprika. Anyways, here is goes!

2 x 16ish oz cans garbonzos
4 Tbs tahini (1/4 cup)
4-5 Tbs lemon juice (1/4 cup +)
6 Tbs olive oil (3/8 cup)
1 Tbs minced garlic
1 Tbs cumin
1.5 Tbs paprika
2 tsp salt

Add to blender and blend thoroughly!

 Variations: I like to add parsley and chipotle pepper. The actual amounts of the garlic, cumin and paprika always change since i never really measure them. That is just a roundabout guess.

Next batch i plan on using cilantro instead of parsley and omit the paprika for more chipotle pepper. Reposted from Facebook

  1. Or if you're tired of killing blenders, use a mixer instead. It works in a pinch.
