Store-Bought Upgrade - Mexican Hummus (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Optional)

20170219T141406-0800.DSC_0283.jvyHbA-MpMe.jpg

Remember earlier this year when we upgraded some store-bought hummus to hearty, delicious mediterranean dip? Well we’re about to do the same but taking it south of the border for a little fiesta!

Let’s be honest, is there anyone out there who doesn’t enjoy Mexican food on the reg. Tacos, burritos, quesadillas, chip and guacamole, margaritas…oh my! So much goodness for one type of ethnic food.

The dip provides the crisp, bold and fresh flavors you expect from Mexican cuisine. Plus it’s not spicy unless you top with a ton of jalapeños.

It is simply a beautifully refreshing and colorful upgrade to a humble container of store-bought hummus.

If you’re running even shorter on time: Top hummus with pre-made guac and pico then drizzle with lime juice. I won’t tell.
