Hummus is a staple in our family, and I got pretty tired of spending $4-5 per small container of hummus from the store! I was also pretty disappointed in all of the scratch hummus recipes but played around until I FINALLY found something our family loves!

*Toddler Tip: This recipe is way too spicy for kids, unless they love spicy things! Omit the crushed red pepper and you will still have a delicious creamy garlic hummus.
