The nice thing about making your own is you can adjust it to your taste and control what goes into it. I have found that most recipes have a little too much tahini for my liking, so I cut back a little on it. It's really a tasty dip and it's healthy!

I make hummus a little different but everyone that tastes it loves it.
Many americans find tahini a bit too strong for their tastes, but I LOVE sesame, so I came up with a great compromise. I use toasted sesame oil instead.
Also they sre a picky lot and don't care for my lemon, so I use lime. That way I get the citrus but they don't get the zippy tartness. Yes, I know some really uneducated palates, lol. But we manage.
Anyway, this may sound gross but here's my hummus recipe:
chickpeas
sea salt
lime juice
lots of garlic
toasted sesame oil
fresh cilantro leaves (or sundried tomatoes or red bell peppers, I've even used shallots. ie-something fresh. etc)
I put it all in the food processor until its creamy smooth. We eat ours with flour tortillas as decent flatbread is not available in the boonies where I live.
Oh, and if you haven't tried fatoush (bread salad), you HAVE TO! It's so good and healthy to boot. Serve all this with some grilled lamb chops that were marinated in rosemary and some mint jelly and its an awesome feast. Ok I'm off to the grocery now, I'm craving it, lol!

So chick peas... those are garbanzo or chi chi beans, right? They come in a can?
Chick peas = garbanzos but I've never heard of chi chi beans.

Chi Chi Beans pac? Gosh, I haven't heard them called that in a long time. But yes, same as chick peas/garbanzo beans. Guess it's a "heartland" kind of term.

I have never heard of them called Chi Chi beans, but I found this info online.

A Chi-Chi bean is like a chickpea, channa, or garbanzo bean. The name comes from the Italian word for chickpea - ceci, pronounced, CHAY-chee.

I thought they were mexican.

I found this unusual recipe. It has the healthy fiber of the chick peas but it is actually a tasty dip for things like apples and bananas.

This week's hummus used black chickpeas, shallots, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, roasted almonds (tossed with cayenne pepper), some hot-pepper infused EVOO, "regular" EVOO, grated carrots, lemon zest, and roasted cumin. Dressed with a drizzle of almond oil, paprika, fresh coriander leaves, chopped. It was very, very good.

Yesterday made another batch of hummus. This time I used black chickpeas, garlic, 3 tsp tahini, some red pepper infused EVOO, regular EVOO, lemon juice (and some of the pulp--organic lemons are much better, thanks TL, I believe you now), roasted cumin, and a dash of sea salt. It is darned good, too. I really like the black chickpeas. Next batch I'll use 1/2 black chickpeas and 1/2 yellow chickpeas.
