Fire Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Updated: May 1, 2021
Is there anything better then fresh homemade red pepper hummus!?! I always have homemade hummus in my refrigerator. I add it to sandwiches, and my kids love to dip fresh veggies and pretzels into their hummus. Chickpeas are packed with nutrients, vitamins, fiber, and protein. It is a delicious and healthy snack and will be a big hit when served at parties and gatherings! Enjoy! xo
