Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Who eats plain hummus? Nobody. That’s who. Roasting your own bell pepper brings a toasty, yet fresh flavor to this classic dip! Plus, its super fun to burn something when it isn’t on accident. Like last time I made toast… and all the fire alarms went off… and I’m too short to turn off the alarms. This hummus had a much happier ending.
