Yum-O! This was super delicious!!! My hubs and I were invited to celebrate New Years Eve with our neighbors. All we needed to bring was ourselves and an appetizer. :) I tinkered with the idea of preparing a hot dish, but didn't know if there would be any way to keep it warm on the buffet. Of all the cold appetizer ideas in my recipe box, this one seemed most interesting to me. I am SOOOO glad I gave this a try! This was simply fantastic, healthy and made a TON! The only downside is that it is a tad expensive to prepare. I pretty much followed SAAVY's directions to the letter except for a couple of minor changes. First, I used most of my roasted pepper juice in lieu of water (I only needed to add a little bit of water to measure 1/2 c.). Second, I added 1/2 T of chipotle sauce and an extra (small) pepper to my hummus (I could barely detect any heat as is). NOTE: Although not necessary, removing the hull from your garbanzo beans will ensure a creamy hummus texture. As M2MIN's review explains, simply rinse your beans, then add them to a large pot of water. Gently rub all of the beans to loosen the hull / skin. The hulls will float to the top of the pot and all you'll need to do is scoop them out, drain and proceed with the recipe. Served with cucumber slices, carrot nibblers and pita chips. To my surprise, out of the three "dunkers," I like the cucumber the best! Thanks for sharing, SAAVYHOSTESS! My neighbors now want your recipe! :-)
