Amazing! Used a fresh chili pepper instead of the ground red pepper. Used 4 cloves of garlic and added extra olive oil. This recipe will be my hummus staple.

Let me tell you how to make a really tasty Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. First of all, ditch the jarred red bell pepper. Sure, it has bell peppers in it, but also a bunch of other chemicals that alter the true flavor. Buy a fresh red bell pepper and roast it, skin it, chop it and add to a food processor. Then add 1-2 Tbsp. of tahini, 1 garlic clove, minced; 1-2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice, 1 (19 oz.) can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained; and then a 1/4 tsp. each of black pepper, salt, cayenne and Hungarian Paprika. If you don't add paprika and cayenne that is fine, but I like it. Puree all until smooth. If too thick either add water until desired consistency or add your favorite lemon-lime soda. I use diet. I also add about a tsp. of Splenda, because I am a diabetic. You could add sugar. This offsets the lemon juice. Try this recipe and you will have a winner for sure that doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth. Put in extra garlic, cumin and coriander and you'll taste it all day!

I made without the roasted red pepper because I did not have any. I also added another T of olive oil. Fantastic.
