Welcome to DC.

Beyond the standard ingredients for hummus, you can add many other flavors. I like Kalamata olive hummus and roasted red pepper hummus.

One of my favorite cookbooks is Otolengi's Jerusalem, which has a ton of good Middle Eastern recipes, they are also fairly accessible, i.e they have available ingredients etc.. I'd start there.

I keep hummus simple, using other beans if I have no chick peas, and subbed peanut butter once when I had no tahini (husband couldn't tell the difference), use red pepper flakes, but I add sides like raw:tomato, zucc, crookneck, carrot, radish, celery, and flat bread pieces. Works a lot like guacamole in my house.

Just a point from a serial hummus maker - cook your own chick peas! I know you can get away with canned chick peas but until you make it with ones you've cooked yourself you won't know how REALLY good home-made hummus can be.

+1. Craig would NOT eat hummus until I cooked the chickpeas from dried and then he thought it was really good. World of difference.
