Roasted Red Pepper Hummus



Making hummus at home is so easy and saves money too!  There are a lot of different recipes to make hummus and I have tried making several but this is my favorite one.  So easy to make and packed full of flavor.  I like to make a batch on the weekend and I also prepare a container of bell pepper strips to keep on hand for quick healthy snacking during the week.   This also is good with pita chips or as a spread.
