    This recipe got me eating hummus and liking it! My only problem is that we are in CA and use CA garlic which apparently is MUCH stronger than the regular stuff so we had to put in a lot more chickpeas to keep our mouths from lighting on fire. LOL - 2/21/13

    Very Good
    I made this and it was delicious! I did tweak it a bit. I roasted the garlic for 35 min. @ 400 so it was nice and oooooozy. I used only 2 15 oz. cans of beans, 2 heads rather than one (many other recipes had about the same ratio) and a whole jalapeno pepper. Very flavorful! - 4/30/08
