"Wow" your guests at your next gathering with this super easy and delicious spicy black bean hummus.

Category Winner: Starters & Drinks. "I created this recipe three years ago based on a popular appetizer my friends ordered at a pizzeria in Greenville, South Carolina. I researched the ingredients and added my own variations to suit my preference for spicy flavors. I received glowing feedback from my husband and friends, and now I keep this recipe on hand for parties and tailgates." —Maureen Redmond, Easley, SC
