National Hummus Day | Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus

I can eat hummus like it’s going out of style. The variation doesn’t matter – lemon, roasted red pepper, traditional, or today’s feature, cilantro jalapeño – there are so many flavors you can make hummus with and I love that about the kind of snack/appetizer/I never know which to label it as.

Is hummus more of an appetizer, or a snack? The time old question that I may never get a solid answer to.

What flavor of hummus is your favorite?
