Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipe

You can serve the following hummus recipe with toasted pita chips or hot pita bread. It is delicious warm but if you make too much you can store it for two days in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat it on the stove or in the microwave. Serve it chilled if you prefer. Serving it warm does intensify the aroma and flavor though.

Depending on your taste, you might want to use more roasted red pepper than called for in this hummus recipe. The more roasted red pepper you use to make this hummus, the richer the color of it will be too. You could also try roasted green pepper for a more savory, tart flavor or even some chili peppers for a spicy kick, which you do not normally get from hummus recipes.

Using roasted bell peppers to make hummus gives a sweeter and juicier flavor to the hummus dip. There are a few different roasted bell pepper recipes you could make but combining the sweet flavor of roasted peppers with the nutty, creamy flavor of hummus results in a really impressive dip with a balanced flavor, which everyone will enjoy a lot.
