For those- like me- who tend to chafe against strict tradition, do try my New Mexican-inspired hummus: Jalapeno Lime Hummus. It's addictively good!
If you cannot use sesame tahini, try subbing a nut or seed butter such as cashew butter, sunflower seed butter or even peanut butter. All work well in a hummus.
