    I love it. I skipped the lemon juice and used low fat sour cream. I used Mrs. Dash instead of pepper and salt and well my son loves it. I love the fact I can control the kick to the hummus. I love hummus but the kick or the bite got to me after a while. I will be making this again. Thank you - 3/11/10

    This was very good! I did use about 1 1/2 lemons worth of juice, but that's how we prefer it. Thanks for sharing this! - 5/15/10

    I added an extra clove of garlic and cut the lemon juice in half and used yogurt instead of sour cream (as suggested byothers) and it turned out delicious. I also added paprika to spice it up a bit. - 5/12/08

    I tried it with sesame oil instead of olive oil, it was ok but I think I'll use all olive oil next time. Nice flavor and consistency. Thanks for the recipe! - 5/27/10

    I'm so glad I tried this. It will save me so much money & the taste is absolutely great. I tried to eat up the store bought hummus after & I couldn't stand the taste of it I had to throw it out. I added more garlic. - 3/23/10

    I used navy beans instead of garbanzos and added basil instead of cumin. Really good. I think the sour cream is the essential ingredient. Next time I'll try it with the garbanzos. - 3/15/10

    I've made this several times & LOVE IT! I up the garlic to 3-4 cloves & mince it. I use a potato masher & like the chunky texture I end up with but a blender would make it smoother. I also sub sesame oil for the evoo & only use 1-1/2 tsp. So inexpensive & DELISH - no more store-bought hummus for me! - 7/27/09

    This is a great recipe! Quick, easy, cheap & tasty! My whole family enjoyed this. I added some hot pepper flakes & a little hot sauce. But I imagine you could get pretty creative with this one! - 4/24/10

    I call this YUMMUS! REALLY GOOD! I've made this several times. I did not have lemon so I used lime and some fresh cilantro, cumin, and a few shakes of red pepper flakes. Or I've done artichoke hearts, lemon, fresh dill in it--------- Great with celery or crackers. - 1/31/10

    So good - I sprinkled a bit of cayenne in it for some more kick and and an extra clove of garlic. But adding in the sour cream was great! I ran everything through my blender and it is quick, easy, and much, much cheaper than store bought hummus. - 3/8/09

    I made this for company, they loved it. I only used half the garlic and added some fresh parsley to freshen it. I also substituted soy cream cheese for the sour cream to keep it dairy free. SO YUMMY! Next time I will add fresh lemon w/ zest! I'll make this often! - 1/7/08
