Simply delightful.

Hummus is a super simple dish to make, and spicing it up is as easy as a little crushed red pepper and paprika. It’s great with crackers, and it’s killer with apple slices or grapes. The sweet and the spice really complement each other.

To control the heat, play amount with the totals on both the paprika and red pepper flakes. The amounts listed below represent the fact that we LOVE things spicy.
