Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
So I know I've tried hummus before, but I think it's only been once or twice. Anyway, it seems to be quite the trend in the food world, and it's SO easy to make. If you can't find a jar of roasted red peppers like me, then roast your own. Either in the oven or directly onto the stove. And when I say directly, I mean right on the burner. Make sure to watch it so it doesn't "over-roast."
