    Pretty good! Very easy to make. I think I bought the wrong type of jalepenos - not much flavor, so i ended up having to add crushed red pepper for some spice. The 1/4 cup of cilantro (I used fresh) was a little over powering, so next time i might use dried or less of the fresh. Can't wait to try! - 9/1/07

    Mmm! Better than store-bought. My husband added a little bit of mild curry powder to bring out the flavor. Deeeelish! We're never buying prepared hummus again. - 8/13/12

  • Incredible!
    Hummus was delicious!! I like strong flavors, so I added more cilantro, lemon, jalapenos and cumin.
    The liquid from the beans was perfect for making hummus smoother.
    I am looking forward to eating it after it has time to "sit".
    Definitely no more store-bought hummus for me!!!
