Spicy Zesty Hummus: what to do with Classic Sabra hummus?

As part of Foodbuzz's Tastemakers program, I occasionally have a chance to try new products.

This time, I received a coupon for a free Sabra product: I could choose from multiple varieties of hummus, fresh salsa, natural guacamole or Greek yogurt dips.

Of course I'm capable of making any of the mentioned snacks by myself. In fact, I love making hummus in my mini food processor and flavoring it with different things such as sun dried tomato. Salsa can take on many flavors too: simple tomato salsa or mango salsa with avocado, etc.

But sometimes, it's just so much easier to buy an already prepared dish at the store.

I decided to get a container of Sabra's Classic Hummus and add a few of my own twists to it.

Spicy Zesty Hummus
1 container Sabra's Classic Hummus
1 chipotle in adobo, seeds removed, finely chopped
zest of 1 lime
juice of 1/2 lime

1. Combine all ingredients together.
2. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let all the flavors mingle together.
3. Serve with crackers or pita chips. {I made my own pita chips by cutting whole wheat pitas into 8 pieces, putting them onto a cookie sheet and spraying them with oil. I then sprinkled the pita with some spices and baked them for about 30 minutes at 325F degree oven.}

The end result was spicy and zesty: just like the title of the post indicates!

What ingredients (if any) do you like to add to your hummus?

I love the texture of Sabra hummus. Definitely my favorite store-bought hummus. The lime looks so pretty on top!

I love Sabra hummus, but my favourite brand is the Yarden one. I'm not really a fan of pimped up hummus. I always buy the plain ones, but I don't mind chickpeas or pine nuts for garnish.

Didn't Sabra Hummus contribute to Darth Vader's political campaign? You should be ashamed of yourself for supporting a product from the dark side.
