Sour Cream and Onion Hummus

Next to salsa, hummus is the most popular ‘dip’ in our house. I usually have everything on hand to make a batch. That’s one of the nice things about hummus. The base recipe doesn’t take a lot of ingredients to make. You can treat it like a blank canvas, adding whatever flavors you like. Like this sour cream and onion hummus, served with toasted pita wedges. Despite the name, there’s not any sour cream in this dish, but it does have that great sour cream taste.
