I love baba ganoush, too, but this is even better Recipes : Roasted Eggplant Spread : Food Network

What makes it better is the roasted red peppers and red onions, and you can CHEW this spread!

I substituted smoked paprika for the cayenne, and I added more garlic.

I LOVE this spread and can eat it by itself with a fork!

I realize that pita chips are associated with Mediterranean cooking. But think outside the box. Use them in place of corn chips and look toward Tex-Mex dips. Or use corn chips with Mediterranean dips. Mix it up a bit. The flavor of the corn chips is just another layer of flavor to the dip.

This is a great dip/spread (I add more chili powder and hot sauce, double the green chiles, and use all extra sharp cheddar):
