Homemade Spicy Hummus

Homemade hummus is a bold investment. A jar of tahini isn’t cheap, a ~15 oz. jar is around $6. BUT once you’ve invested in that jar, hummus is just a few small steps away! (You can get +15 servings of hummus for one jar of tahini) Overall you can save if you home make your hummus. Plus if you’re like me and Mike, you don’t like/always want the same flavors. So homemaking hummus let’s you control the amount you make. No more wasting hummus or eats flavors you don’t love!
