Easy Homemade Hummus Recipes with a Southern Spin
Hummus is traditionally made with chickpeas that are flavored with lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and tahini, but we're here to show you a few of our favorite ways to make hummus with a Southern spin. These recipes go way beyond classic hummus that uses chickpeas as the base and turns some of our favorite Southern ingredients into a delicious dip. We're talking classic favorites like boiled peanuts and black-eyed peas.
